Expert on the deposits of the London Clay, who once stopped to retrieve a sample in Oxford Street traffic. Chris was born on the outskirts of Southampton, where he attended Barton Peveril Grammar School. He read Geology in Kingston College of Technology. In his early years Chris had two main interests, astronomy and fossils, the latter leading him to become a member of the Geologists.

The London Clay Formation is the youngest bedrock unit within the Andover district. The formation consists mainly of grey, pyritic, bioturbated, silty and fine-grained sandy clay with interbedded seams of calcareous cementstone and rounded flint pebble beds; a glauconitic sandy bed occurs at the base and channel sands, of variable thickness.

The London Clay is well developed in the London Basin, where it thins westwards from around metres ( feet) in Essex and north Kent to around metres (15 feet) in Wiltshire. though it is not frequently exposed as it is to a great extent covered by more recent Neogene sediments and Pleistocene gravel es: Harwich Formation.

The Stratigraphy of the London Clay and Associated Deposits, (). Time in Stratigraphy. The chalk basin has been infilled with a sequence of clays and sands of the more recent Paleogene Period, then Neogene Period ( to million years old).

Most significant is the stiff, grey-blue London Clay, a marine deposit which is well known for the fossils it contains and can be over metres thick beneath the city. This supports most of the deep foundations and tunnels that exist. Various definitions of 'clay' are explored. Clay mineralogy is described, plus the geological formation of clay deposits and their fundamental materials properties.

World and British clay deposits are reviewed and explained. New compositional data are provided for clay formations throughout the stratigraphic 5/5(1). The stratigraphy of the London Clay and associated deposits.
