The Geology of the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge is fascinating, if not complex.

For a fuller understanding of our geo-heritage, we have created a very detailed paper on 'The Geology of the Mid Cheshire Sandstone Ridge'. For ease of understanding, we have subdivided our paper into the following subheadings:

1. Introduction
2. Ancient Landscapes
3. Rocks of the Sandstone Ridge
4. The Lost Years, and the Formation of the Ridge
5. The Ice Ages
6. People and the Landscape

Our thanks to Nick Holmes, Trustee, for his invaluable work on this section of our Website.
