Memoirs of the Geological Survey, England and Wales: The Geology of the Country Around Norwich, (Explanation of Quarter Sheets N. E and 66 S. E. Of ... Map of England and Wales) (Classic Reprint)
One of the earliest geological descriptions of Norfolk was published by Samuel Woodward in 1833. To the grandson of this old geologist has been confided the task of preparing the present Geological Survey Memoir, which I think will be found not unworthy of its author and his name.
The Chalk of Norfolk is interesting as probably exhibiting higher beds than occur elsewhere in England. The very full lists of fossils give great value to the Chapters on the Cretaceous Beds and the Crag.
In the grouping of the Glacial Beds the author has simply adopted a classification applicable to the district, being of opinion that no general classification can be established until the Glacial Beds are minutely mapped over much larger areas. This work is now in progress by the Geological Survey. As it proceeds we shall probably learn that these beds are less complex than they appear to be, and that many of the divisions have only a local value.
