Summary:The long history of re-activation and basement control on this northeast trending lineament some 10 km west of the Church Stretton fault zone is typical of lineaments throughout Wales and the Welsh Borders. It suggests that both Caledonian and Variscan structural trends north of the Variscan front may be inherited from older, pre-Silurian or even Precambrian, basement structures. [R.A.H.]
