Abstract: Information is summarised on the relics of plateau deposits which lie on the Middle Jurassic limestone outcrops east and south-east of Bath, between 150 m. and 200 m. above O.D. Clasts include flint, quartz, and sandstones in a clayey or loamy matrix. A possible glacial origin is discussed. Age of the original deposit, now mainly preserved in fissures or other cavities, is likely to be early to middle Pleistocene.
