Caption: St. James's Church, Southam, viewed from the south,Warwickshire.
Description: This late medieval church at Southam is sited close to the junction between the strata of the Triassic and Jurassic systems and is principally constructed of stone from each system, the Triassic, White Lias and Jurassic Blue Lias argillaceous limestones. Southam Church is principally constructed of locally quarried Blue Lias (brown-grey), the lowest beds of the Jurassic and White Lias (greyish-white) limestone. The spire includes red sandstone probably from the Triassic Sherwood Sandstone Group. The limestones of the Lias Group span the junction between the Triassic and Jurassic systems. The thin blocky argillaceous limestones from this interval are widely used for building stone across their outcrop, which extends from Dorset to Yorkshire.
