Shropshire Geological Society :
Did you know that Tibberton sits upon rocks of Permian and Triassic age? That means they are about 200 million to about
300 million years old (a time beore the dinosaurs!). Specifically, they are the Permian 'Bridgnorth Sandstone' (Cross bedded aeolian sandstones) and Triassic 'Kidderminster Formation' (cross-bedded red-brown sandstone and pebble conglomerates in a sandy matrix deposited by a wide river flowing north -
The clasts are dominantly brown/purple quartzites, with occasional sandstones, limestones and other mineral clasts).
Both types of sandstone have been used widely in local buildings in the past. If you are interested in your local geology, or the geology of Shropshire in general, why not visit the webpage of Shropshire Geological Society, or become a member?
