Soudley Valley Rural Geology Trail (Forest of Dean)

The Soudley Valley, near Cinderford, exposes nearly 100 million years of Earth’s history in the rocks exposed in quarries and cuttings on either side of the valley. Rocks range from Devonian sandstones, mudstones and conglomerates, to Carboniferous coal seams, containing well preserved plant fossils.
