This report describes the geology of 1:lO 000 sheet SJ 80 NE (Brewood) which is included in 1 :50 000 Geological Sheet 153 (Wolverhampton) (Figure 1). The sheet area (hereafter referred to as the ‘district’) was first geologically surveyed at the 1 : 10 560 scale by H. Dewey, E. E. L. Dixon and R. L. Sherlock between 19 1 5 and 192 1, and published on Staffordshire County Series sheets 49SE, 50SW, 55NE, 55SE, 56NW and 56SW. The one-inch Geological Sheet 153 (Wolverhampton) was published in 1929, and the accompanying sheet memoir (Whitehead et al.) dates fiom 1928. The district was resurveyed by E. Hough at the 1 : 10 000 scale in 1997. The district lies within South Staffordshire, with the small town of Brewood the main centre of population. The countryside around Brewood is rural, and largely given over to agriculture. The east-west-trending M54, which is the principal road between the West Midlands and Shropshire, traverses part of the south of the district. The River Penk flows northwards along a shallow valley across the south-eastern and north-eastern corners of the district. The Shropshire Union Canal flows fiom Shut Green in the north of the district to The Hattons in the south.
