Abstract/Summary

This Sheet Explanation provides a summary of the geology of the district covered by the geological 1:50 000 Series Sheet 167 Dudley published as a bedrock and superficial edition in 2012. T he district lies in the counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire and the metropolitan district of the West Midlands. The main population centres are in the east of the district, within the Black Country conurbation that includes Bilston, Wednesbury, Sedgley, Tipton, Dudley, Brierley Hill, Kingswinford, Halesowen and Stourbridge. Scattered villages and the town of Bridgnorth lie in the west. The western and central parts of the district comprise mainly farmland and woodland, including the northern part of the Wyre Forest. The elevation of the district is typically in excess of 75 m above OD, with the highest point within the district, at 315 m above OD, in the Clent Hills in the south-east. The district is drained by the rivers Severn and Stour, which flow from north to south across the western and central parts of the district, respectively.
