9n. A Train Ride Geology Trail – Severn Valley Railway

The route of the railway is underlain by rocks of various ages. Kidderminster lies on Triassic rocks, Bewdley and Bridgnorth on Permian, and Arley, Highley and Hampton Loade on Carboniferous rocks. On your train journey look out for rock exposures by the track-side. All the rocks that you will see are sandstones and belong to a group known as sedimentary rocks.
