Beale, S. (1988). Field Meeting Report: Site visit to the Ironbridge Bypass, led by Mr A. Gledhill 5th April 1987, p.4-5

The purpose of the field meeting was to visit the igneous and sedimentary strata exposed by excavations for the new Ironbridge Bypass, including Silurian Wenlock Shales, Carboniferous Limestone, the Little Wenlock basalt, and the Coal Measures. Extensive landslides were also seen.

Beale, S. (1988). Field Meeting Report: The Shelve Inlier, led by Bill Dean 17th May 1987, p.8-14

The purpose of the field meeting was to visit key exposures within the Ordovician Shelve Inlier. The primary aim of this excursion was to examine rock types of Arenig and Llanvirn age, as well as lower Silurian strata that were deposited unconformably on the Ordovician rocks, following folding and erosion of the latter during late Ordovician times.
