Caption: Lane End Brick Pit, Buckley. Looking NW.
Description: Lane End Brick Pit, Buckley. Looking NW. The view shows the lower part of the quartzite sandstone, overlying the Buckley Fireclay. Dip east about 10 degrees. The fireclay below the sandstone consists of white and purple marl passing down irregularly into soft blue shale. A conspicuous band of white marl in the purple is bent up and truncated by the sandstone. This does not indicate any unconformity, but a slight horizontal differential movement, resulting in a little 'thrust', in the process of deformation of the strata. The position of this section is just below the nearest part of the iron fence on the right-hand side of the photograph of Knowl Hill. (Buckley Fireclay Group, at top of Middle Coal Measures.)
