New Sections showing the Junction of the Cambrian and Pre-cambrian at Nuneaton

  • L. J. Wills (a1) and F. W. Shotton (a1)

IN the course of the Leicester meeting of the British Association in 1933, Section C visited the Nuneaton district and saw, amongst other exposures, sections showing the junction of the Cambrian and Pre-Cambrian. Two of these have never been previously described, and the most striking one (that in the north corner of Messrs. Boon’s quarry) was only first seen by the writers when on a preliminary tour of the excursion route. Both sections merit description, in view of the light which they throw upon the nature of the unconformable junction of the two systems, and upon the character of the Pre-Cambrian rocks and their relation to the rocks of Charnwood Forest.
