Reconstruction of a northward view of the landscape in which the Cromhall Sandstone was deposited by rivers crossing a flat coastal plain. The coastal plain was subject to periodic invasion by the sea. Time around 334 million years ago.
In this view we drop in elevation and swing around over the coastal plain to look south towards the sea into which the meandering rivers are flowing. The river channels would be constantly shifting building deltas into the sea. Plants grow in the mud and sand deposits between the river channels.
At this time Britain is located around 13′ south of the equator, so the sun at noon will be high in the sky, but to the north.
