GCR block descriptions: Precambrian and Structural Geology 2007


Provided here are the Precambrian and Structural Geology GCR block descriptions, produced as part of the Geological Conservation Review. These ‘blocks’ provided an overall structure for site selection by ensuring that the different themes of geoheritage or Earth science would receive comparable treatment.

The Precambrian and Structural Geology GCR block descriptions provided here include the following:

  • Block 2: Alpine Structures of Southern England (ALP-STR-SE);
  • Block 107: Caledonian Structures of Shetland (CAL-STR-SD);
  • Block 13: Caledonian Structures of the Lake District (CAL-STR-LD);
  • Block 14: Caledonian Structures of the Southern Uplands (CAL-STR-SU);

  • Block 99: Torridonian (TOR);
  • Block 102: Variscan Structures of South-West England (VAR-STR-SW).
  • Block 103: Variscan Structures of South Wales and the Mendips (VAR-STR-WM);
