This Sheet Explanation provides a summary of the geology of the district covered by the 1:50 000 scale Geology Series Sheet 9 Rothbury, published in a combined Bedrock and Superficial Deposits edition in 2009. The geology is described using the revised lithostratigraphical classification adopted for Carboniferous rocks in Great Britain (Waters et al., 2007). More comprehensive descriptions of aspects of the geology can be found in individual Technical Reports and Research Reports prepared during the resurvey and in the comprehensive memoir that accompanied the previous revision survey of the district (Fowler, 1936). Many of the detailed observations and descriptions contained in the 1936 memoir still hold, albeit couched in old-fashioned terms. The local geological succession is summarised inside the front cover of this Sheet Explanation, and Figure 1 provides a comparison between previous and current classifications applied to the rocks.
