The current belief in a single chalky till glaciation of eastern England is upheld by a detailed examination of a section at Barrington which had been said to reveal two such tills. An attempt is made to arrange the glacial, periglacical and interglacial beds of southern Cambridgeshire into stratigraphic order and to place them within Quaternary stages. The study concludes with a consideration of the fabric data that were used to support the claim that two major chalk-rich tills occur in East Anglia. Till mineralization is reported in the area for the first time.
