Abstract

The Norwich coal seams near Longford, opened out
by Mr. Mason and others, have only been discovered
recently, although the existence of the Mesozoic Coal Measure
Sandstones in the immediate neighbourhood-notably at
Hadspen-had long been known.
The exact extent of this basin of coal has not yet been
determined.
Rocks of Mesozoic and Upper Palmozoic age are to be
found everywhere bordering this ancient Tertiary Lake
Basin, and even near its centre.
It is evident that the coal measures have been
subject to violent pressure laterally since their deposition.
