A fine example of variable chalk topography caused by ice and water action on display at the Thanington Park Scheme. Those with a keen eye will spot the dark reddish-brown iron pan layer at the twisting and turning boundary of the Terrace Gravels/Head Deposits and the underlying weathered Seaford Chalk Formation, formed by secondary leaching and precipitation of the iron.
Richard Jackson Limited are working with Pentland Homes delivering civil and geotechnical engineering services as part of a new 750 home development on the edge of Canterbury. With ground conditions like these, separating the Superficial Deposits from the Chalk as part of the groundworks can be quite a challenge!
