Caption: Churchwood Quarry. Looking NE.
Description: Churchwood Quarry. Looking NE. Landslide developed on bedding planes. Gently dipping Black Rock Limestone (Tournaisian) showing the development of bedding-plane slip owing to removal of support when quarrying. This type of landslip commonly occurs when dipping limestones are quarried or excavated without making due allowance for the geological structure.
