This report describes the geology of 1:lO 000 sheet SK 52 NW (West Leake). The map sheet (hereafter referred to as the ‘area’) falls in the 1 :50 000 Geological sheets 141 (Loughborough) and 142 (Melton Mowbray); it was frcst geologically surveyed at the one-inch to one-mile scale by E Hull between 1850 and 1860, and published as part of the Old Series One-Inch Geological Sheet 71 SE. The district was re-surveyed on the six-inch scale by C Fox-Strangways in 1892- 1895 (Loughborough Sheet) and R L Sherlock in 1906 (Melton Mowbray Sheet) and published on the 1 : 10 560 County Series Sheets for Leicestershire (L 10 NE), Derbyshire (DY 56 SE) and Nottinghamshire (N 46 SE, 50 NW, 50 SW and 49 SE): detailed sheet compilations are given on the accompanying 1:lO 000 map. The New Series One-Inch Geological sheets for Loughborough (1 4 1) and Melton Mowbray (1 42) were published in 1904 and 1909 respectively; accompanying memoirs were also produced (Fox-Strangways, 1905; Lamplugh et al., 1909). After further minor amendments, both sheets were reprinted at the 1 :50 000 scale and re-issued in 1976.
