This report describes the geology of 1 :10 000 sheet SJ 71 SE (Sheriflhales) and the southern part of SJ 71 NE (Newport East), south of northing 317 (Figure 1). This area was first surveyed geologically at the 1 :10 560 scale by E E L Dixon and T H Whitehead between 1919 and 1924 and published on County Sheets Staffordshire 43SW, 49NW, and Shropshire 3 lSW, 37NW, 37SW and 37SE. The one-inch Geological Sheet 153 (Wolverhampton), which includes both areas, was published in 1929, and the accompanying sheet memoir (Whitehead et al.) dates fiom 1928. A 1 km strip at the western margin of the area YlO - 316) was surveyed by R J 0 Hamblin in 1970 - 72 as overlap for the Telford Special Sheet; the remainder was surveyed by E Hough in 1996. This report deals primarily with the latter area, although reference is made to boreholes in ground surveyed by R J 0 Hamblin.
