Abstract/Summary

This report describes the geology of the 1:10 000 sheets TM 08 NW, NE, 09 SW, SE and the easternmost parts of sheets TL 98 NE and 99 SE, a l l of which lie within the D i s s (175) geological map. The area was f i r s t surveyed by F J Bennett as part of the Old Series One-Inch Sheets 50 NW and 66 SW (both published in 1884) . The primary 1:10 000 survey of the area was made by S J Mathers, J A Zalasiewicz and A Smith in 1985 under the direction of D r R G Thurrell as Regional Geologist. Uncoloured dyeline copies of the maps can be obtained from the British Geological Survey (NERC), Keyworth. The area l i e s in Norfolk, between Thetford and Norwich, with the town of Attleborough situated on its northern margin. It is predominantly a rural area. In addition to Attleborough, the villages of East Harling, Kenninghall, Banham, Old Buckenham and New Buckenham are the main settlements. The land is largely used for arable farming with wheat, barley and sugar beet as the main crops. The ground in the eastern part of the area forms a broad Boulder Clay plateau generally above 50 m OD. The western parts of the area, however, are dissected by small streams which drain westwards into the River Thet. These western parts generally l i e at elevations of 20-40 m OD.
