Samples from Wye Valley (Little Doward)


Following images are of representative samples of the different lithologies in the Little Doward, Wye Valley area. For use in conjunction with the Wye Valley 1 & 2 GeoExplore field trips. These images are also available for field use in the GeoExplore app – see theĀ  Stratigraphic Column for these two field trips.

We start with the youngest – Sample H. All images display a mm division scale and state to what extent the sample showed a reaction when a drop of dilute hydrochloric acid was placed on it.
