The Lancashire Coalfield in North West England was an important British coalfield. Its coal seams were formed from the vegetation of tropical swampy forests in the Carboniferous period over million years ago.

The Romans may have been the first to use coal in Lancashire and its shallow seams and outcrops were exploited on a small scale from the Middle Ages and extensively after the start. LOWER COAL MEASURES NEAR WIGAN 77 The Cannel Mine of the by-pass cutting overlies at least m.

Abstract. This chapter covers the classic areas of Coal Measures of the Lancashire, Yorkshire and East Midlands coalfields (Figure ). They are the thickest and most fully developed coalfields north of the Wales-Brabant Barrier, with up to m of Westphalian strata being : C.

Cleal, B. Thomas. The geology of Cheshire in England consists mainly of Triassic sandstones and the north west of Cheshire, these rocks are heavily faulted and the underlying Carboniferous Coal Measures are thrown up. Around the areas of Poynton and Macclesfield, the coal is close to the surface and was easily the Coal Measures is the Millstone Grit, which appears towards the Derbyshire.

This is the thickest and most widely worked seam over much of the coalfield; it contains excellent quality coal, is locally over m in thickness, and formed the original basis for large scale exploitation of.

The coal measures axe nearly 3, feet thick, and there are at least forty distinct seams of coal, varying in thickness from about an inch to six feet. Strata 1st Coal ("Black Clay Coal") 18 in. to 2 Various Strata 2nd Coal (Upper Mountain Mine). 15' Various Strata, 3rd Coal (Gannister) from 4 ft.

The aggregate thickness of these Coal-measures is about feet.^ Again a very great increase is observed in the Coal-measures of the Lancashire district, where, in- cluding the Gannister beds, they attain a maximum thickness of feet.'.

Overlying the Millstone Grit sequence is the thick Westphalian sequence of sandstones, mudstones and coal seams collectively referred to as the Pennine Coal Measures Group and which forms the Lancashire Coalfield, the western part of which extends into Merseyside.

The youngest Carboniferous strata in the area are the non-productive (of coal. ICE Virtual Library essential engineering knowledge. Cart. Mobile.

The number of seams of workable coal, as also the character of the strata in which they occur, vary considerably in different parts of the area; thus in the neighbourhood of Saint Helen's the number of coal seams exceeding two feet compared with 17 in the Wigan and 18 in the Manchester district; a general thickening out of the coal.

Leicestershire. The Leicestershire Coalfield is small, being only 11 miles (18km) along the north-south axis and 3 miles (5km) along the east-west axis. The seams outcrop at the northern end of the field and dip gently to the south east under Triassic strata and the coal measures are cut off on the eastern side of the huge Thrislington reverse fault which brings pre Cambrian rocks to the.

Carboniferous. Rocks originating in the Carboniferous Period underlie the uplands of eastern and north Lancashire. Listed in order of succession i.e. lowermost/oldest first, they comprise the various limestones, mudstones, siltstones and sandstones of the Bowland High Group and Trawden Limestone Group, Craven Group, Millstone Grit Group, Pennine Coal Measures Group and Warwickshire Group.

The strata of these measures range and dip as do those of the Newcastle Coal-fields. The number of seams or beds of Coal is ab varying from 6 inches to 11 feet, and the total thickness of Coal about 80 feet. The Manchester or South Lancashire Coal-field.
