Revision of Wangford from Thu, 2013-11-07 11:48

Suffolk (around TM 467780)

In the pits at Wangford Common the large-scale cross bedded gravels of the Westleton Beds are divided into a 3-4 metre-thick unit with shallow dip (ca 6°) overlain by a 6-7 metre-thick unit with a steeper dip (ca 20°), both inclined towards the southeast. Despite the coarseness of the sediment and energetic depositional setting, some relatively unbroken mollusc shells can be found and these may be encrusted by bryozoans.
