Proceedings of the Geologists' Association ' ... thorough and clearly presented with numerous photographs, maps and illustrations ... images are sharp and well-captioned. ... a must-aehv guide!' Mineral News ' ... thoroughly researched and wonderfully detailed. ... The descriptions are fabulous ... The guidebook is designed to be practical with a water-resistant cover and colour coding of page edges so that a particular excursion can be found quickly... a top quality publication at a very affordable cost, and I recommend it highly.'
