This guide covers a significant part of southern Hampshire, a part of West Sussex and the Isle of Wight. The region is founded on Cretaceous and Palaeogene bedrock, the younger forming the final phase of sedimentation of the Hampshire Basin. The bedrock is covered by a thick and extensive succession of Quaternary superficial deposits subdivided into a number of units that represent a long Quaternary history as the landscape was denuded through numerous periglacial/ temperate climatic cycles.
