Surface geology suggests folding within the DYS-MRB-WHM although this is not marked on the map (around Cropredy Lawn/Beecham's cottages), this may fit in with localised faulting. It is unclear from the fieldslip what evidence was used — there is a borehole (#88 on field slip, SP44NE73, 331590) which has 2' soil, 3' yellow clay, 85' blue clay/lmst). This would suggest possibly a valley head overlying CHAM. Fieldslips illegible! But the hand drawn contours suggest that the geologist was fitting the outcrop to the contours which aren't quite correct. WHM outcrop possibly should be on top of the small hill instead?

Faulting — check how deep likely to go. Banbury fault (on Banbury sheet but not within model area, stops within Charmouth mudstone according to 50K sheet cross section).

Need to add in BCMU below BAN

Dips of deeper units arbitrarily adjusted to account for change in section direction.

Outcrop of DYS in valley near Byfield does not fit with borehole info or topo so I have left it out.

Deeper geology in all sections taken from boreholes where possible but roughly tracked along elsewhere.

Mapping and borehole do not agree in extent of WHM.

The throw on the fault at the western end of this section is unclear - it changes along its length

Completing this (straight) section showed a kink in the CHAM halfway along the section (at HS2_Area4_NESW_Section4)which I have straightened out and will use to adjust other sections.

Section8_KA thicknesses at eastern end not as expected

Inconsistent naming — what is SASH? Salford Shale, lower part of BLI — dies out in northern part of Area 4.

Faulting in northeast corner?? Not sure, KAM to investigate.

LPMB/RLS equivalent to BLI and WLI?? WLI = Langport Member (LPMB), BLI = SASH and RLS

Edge matching issues — talk to Keith about his section 18, borehole 332324 — why has he not used the level for PNG?

Something not right now I have snapped to KAM's sections — check.

Re-do? Dog-leg in section is not reflected in units.

Check dip of upper units at western end. Adjusted to be more level.
