Excerpt from The Geology of the Country Between Whitby and Scarborough

The previous edition of this memoir, describing the hand-coloured map, dealt only with the area included within the old-series Quarter Sheet 95 nw. (new-series, Sheet 44) of the one-inch map. When this map was prepared for a coloured - printed edition it was decided to include, as an inset in the blank sea-space, the small triangular area around Whitby which was represented on the Sheet to the north (104 se. Of the old-series map 35, new-series). The original description of this area was embodied with that of the next Sheet westward (104 sw. Old-series; 34, new-series) in a memoir entitled The Geology Of North Cleveland' (published, 1888) the 'description has been revised and incorporated in the present memoir, to correspond with the new map. The limits of the tract are shown in the sketch-map on the next page.

Geological maps on the scale of six inches to a mile have also been published, where the Six-inch Sheets include or approach the coast-line, these Sheets being Nos. 20, 32, 33, 46, 47, 62, 77 and 78. The geology of the district is further illustrated by the published Horizontal Sections,' Nos. 130, 134, 135 and 137 and by Vertical Sections,' Sheet 67. (see List on inside page of Back Cover.) The land-area to be dealt with measures rather less than 100 sq. Miles, and is composed principally Of the high uncultivated moorlands between the valley of the Esk and the Vale of Pickering. These moorlands rise to over 900 ft. Above 0d. In the western part of the map, culminating at 957 it.1 on Lilla Howe, Fylingdales Moor. To the north of the moorlands the valley of the Esk and its tributaries forms a broad irregular depression of fertile country extending to the coast west of Whitby, and linking on the south-east with an amphi theatre of similar land which is truncated by the sea in Robin Hood's Bay. Farther to the south the moorland valley of Harwood-dale extends into a fertile lowland around Cloughton and Sea] by and is continued coastwise to the northern suburbs of Scarborough.
