Caption: The Southgate Council Gravel Pit in Hedge Lane. Excursion to Southgate, March 28th 1914.
Description: The Southgate Council Gravel Pit in Hedge Lane is interesting as cutting across the boundary between the Middle Terrace and Lower Terrace Gravels, although there is no surface feature to indicate it. The Middle Terrace deposits (gravel and brickearth) are about 15 to 20 ft. in thickness. In the above sections the underlying floor of London Clay plunges down into a deep channel now filled with drift to a thickness of more than 56 feet. Added note: Low Terrace Gravels; Middle Terrace. [Bottom to top.].
