Lincewood (part of Langdon Nature Reserve)


Site of geological interest with potential for geological education. Any significant excavations in the reserve should be recorded.


Site description

A short distance north-west of the Langdon Hills is an isolated, wooded hill known as Lincewood with an identical geology to the Langdon Hills. The hill is essentially an isolated patch of Bagshot Sand overlying Claygate Beds and London Clay, with the summit capped with flint gravel known as ‘pebble gravel’.

Lincewood is part of Langdon Nature Reserve, Essex Wildlife Trust’s largest inland reserve. There is a visitor centre and car park on Lower Dunton Road. It is possible that, with the cooperation of the Trust, a permanent section through the Bagshot Sand and/or pebble gravel could be created as an educational feature to inform the public about the geology of the area.
