Site name: Radwinter Road Sand Pit

Grid reference: TL 6362 3612

Brief description of site:

Sand pit formerly with exposures of sand laid down by the Thames in the middle of the Ice Age.


Summary of geological interest

Disused sand pit close to the road which formerly had exposures of pale yellow sand belonging to the Kesgrave (Thames) Sands and Gravels. Much sand is still visible but there are no sections. There has been much burrowing by badgers. The pit is shown on the 1921 Ordnance Survey map as 'old sand pit', so it has been in existence for a considerable time.
