Sedgwick, LL.D. 1847, and J. W. Salter, 1853--7. The faults are aU by J. W. S. The strata, in descending order, are: --f. Arenig (or Skiddaw) Group. Dark earthy slates on a base of sandstone ( = Stiper Stones, Shropshire). e. Tremadoc Group. Dark slates, iron stained, and with felspathic beds--1500 feet thick. d. Ffestiniog Group.
