Composition of the Beds. —
“Very good clean sand is met with in some places, and in others fairly good gravel, but on the whole, and for most purposes, the deposit must be described as inferior in quality;—the sand is stony, or the gravel is too sandy, and in some layers there is too much argillaceous matter. The whole is of a rather ruddy colour when dry, but much darker looking when first cut and therefore damp.”   p 211
