Description: Jones's Gravel-pit, 1120 yd. NE of Trellech Church. Looking NE. Quartz Conglomerate section. Another view of gravel-pit face. [The quarry floor formed of red marl. Above is 4-6 feet of rather massive conglomerate. The upper beds consist of soft conglomeratic sandstone with marl layer at base: these rest unconformably on the lower deposit. Throughout the pit the cementing material in the conglomerate has broken down leaving a relatively soft pebbly sandstone which is used as a gravel.]
