The 2nd edition of the Guide to the Geology of London has added two new itineraries to the original ten Itineraries from within the M25 to provide snapshots of the rocks underlying London. It aims to cover all the rocks types that outcrop within the area. It describes all but one of the SSSIs including Harefield, Charlton, Abbey Wood, and Quaternary sites in north and east London. Chalk is described from the magnificent quarry at Riddlesdown, Croydon as well as underground at Chislehurst and Pinner. Geomorphology walks and the Geological Illustrations of Crystal Palace Park are also described. It is a multi-authored guide drawing on the best authority for the locations chosen. The original ten itineraries have been updated with new developments.
