One of the classic areas of British geology is reexamined using perspectives provided by the tectonically controlled rock cycle and the Biblical record of the Flood. Field evidences are described which are highly suggestive of inter-related catastrophic processes and short time intervals. The conventional lengthy geologic timescales claimed for these rocks are challenged. The observations have a bearing on discussions relating to the position of the Flood/post-Flood boundary.
