Abstract/Summary

The area covered by sheets TM 29 SW & SE lies about 15 km SSE of Norwich and is part of a widespread boulder clay - covered plateau drained to the north by the R, Tas and to the east by the Broome Beck. The only settlements are a f e w v i l l a g e s , of which Hempnall and Woodton are the largest, and scattered farms. The area is largely devoted to agriculture. D r i f t deposits cover the whole district, those older than the Boulder Clay being exposed i n the r i v e r valleys only. Solid formations beneath the D r i f t are known.from the records of s c a t t e r e d boreholes and from p i t s t o the w e s t of Hempnall.
