The authors published a report in 2002 describing the sampling of argillaceous formations of the Lias Group at twenty-eight sites in South Wales, Eastern and Southern England. This report forms an addendum to the original report and describes the sampling of further Liassic formations in the counties of Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. Weathered and unweathered material was collected as undisturbed block samples and disturbed bulk samples from exposed faces. The samples were taken to give representative geotechnical properties of the lithostratigraphic formations of the Lias Group present at the sampling sites in a weathered and unweathered condition, if possible. The location of each site is described briefly and is indicated on a 1:50K OS map base. The stratigraphic units present at the site are listed and the site indicated on a 1:50K geological map base. Photographs of sections and sampling sites are also present. The types of samples taken from each site are specified and difficulties regarding the sampling are indicated where appropriate.
