This report presents the results of a study commissioned by the Department of the Environment in 1985 to provide a geological information base that would facilitate informed- consideration of planning and decisions on development proposals in the Crosby, BootIe, Aintree area. Planning and development are mainly concerned with the surface and immediate subsurface materials which in this area are largely superficial deposits. For this reason no revision of the underlying solid geology has been·undertaken. The extent, characteristics and variations of the recognised superficial deposits are described, together with their known interrelationships. An introductory section deals with the methods whereby .the various ·output. thematic maps were derived and how they are intended to be used. The relevance of various features to planning and land use is indicated. Additional sections deal with the actual geological history of the area (explaining· the formation and distribution of the deposits described) and the history of previous geological research. In the light of the study carried out and as a· complement to the results presented, recommendations for future work in the area are included.
