Rare puddingstone rock found during bypass construction

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A 3.5-tonne slab of distinctive rock found during the construction of a bypass could be an "unusual" find.

The Hertfordshire puddingstone was discovered by workers constructing the county's A120 Little Hadham bypass.

Dr Tim Sands, an expert in physical geography at the University of Hertfordshire, said this type of rock "is rarely found where it is formed".

But this could "represent a piece of in situ puddingstone" broken off by road workers.

He said a boulder of this size was "relatively rare".

Hertfordshire puddingstone is a geological formation consisting of flint gravel bound in a silica cement-like material, giving the appearance of a fruit pudding.
