Following deglaciation, post‐glacial sea‐level rise and the re‐establishment of regional and local drainage systems led to the formation of the largely subdued topography that now dominates the Cheshire Basin. This landscape is incised by rivers including the Mersey and Dee, and near the Mersey Estuary forms a low‐lying coastal plain comprising Holocene‐age coastal deposits.
