British Regional Geology: East Anglia

Starting the story at the beginning we have to go down in some places more than a kilometre to a basement of Lower Palaeozoic and even Proterozoic rocks, including sediments, extrusive and intrusive igneous rocks. Somewhat younger basement rocks from the Silurian, Devonian and Triassic are limited to the NW of the area.

The oldest rocks to appear at the surface are the Jurassic Oxford Clays of the Peterborough area. Whilst in Norfolk the succession kicks off with Lower cretaceous unconformity and the striking cliffs of Hunstanton with the Carstone, Red Chalk and Chalk.
