A simple record of the geology and the fossils, mineralized bone, bone and stone tools, and minerals excavated from it, and any other item that helps record the history and pre history of the deep beck valleys of the south west area of Cleveland,in the north east of England .

Packed gravels and red clay at Ormesby beck.
These images show yet again the red clay underlying the packed gravel layer, as at all the other beck locations excavated in the south west area of Cleveland.
I was unable to expose a lot as i had no equipment, but the bit i excavated leaves me in no doubt it is the same geology that i have already exposed at Stainton, Marton, Maltby, and soon i am confident i will uncover the same deposits at Stainsby beck.
The red clay can be seen bottom then the packed gravels, with the normal shroud of what i believe to be Alluvium.
