Peter,

We have Greensand mixed with gravels and alluvial's here at Dorking and it 
behaves much the same as any other sand.

Can anyone (in the south-west I guess) offer any advice/information
regarding the properties of a certain soil that I have come across in
Dorset? It has been described to me as "greensand with chert". Chert being a
rock type present not unlike flint is in soils in my neck of the woods (East
Sussex).

 

I am particularly interested in its behaviour on steeply sloping woodland
sites. It seems pretty unstable and windthrow quite a common occurrence.

 

Peter
