Whirlaw Stones (Delta)

from by Spaceship



Delta: As the rivers left the uplands of Carboniferous Yorkshire, the reduction in gradient and freedom from the constraints of the valleys allowed the flow to spread ad rapidly lose energy. With this loss of engery came the deposition of more course grained sediment and the creation of vast river deltas, spreading out into the Pennine sedimentary basin. This was the creation of the Millstone Grit. Recorded at Whirlaw Stones SD 9338 2594
