Geological Surveys Boulder Clay . Still no sign of it in the South West of Ancient Cleveland !

 The opening excavations at Hemlington , and yet again as in Yarm Thornaby , Coulby Newham the very same red clay as in the beck valleys , with no large stone content !

These excavations are 12 ft deep in places .

I have only ever noticed one constant in the superficial deposits of south west Cleveland , that is a definite relationship in colour with the red and blue Triassic Bed rock it sits above , although the superficial surface deposits are highly calcareous .

I have now viewed more new build sites between Redcar and Yarm with exactly the same findings , No Boulder Clay !
