Figure 4.1
Map showing the solid geology of the Oxfordian and Kimmeridgian beds in the Cleveland Basin, with the principal stuctural and geographical features. (Based on Versey, 1929, fig. 1; BGS 1:250 000 Solid Sheet 54N 02W (Tyne-Tees) (1981); BGS 1:1 500 000 Tectonic map of Britain, Ireland and adjacent areas (1996) and BGS 1:50 000 Sheet 54 (Scarborough) (1998)). In the Vale of Pickering there is a thick cover of Quaternary lacustrine deposits.
