Provenance & quality

Following recommendation from the University Department of Geology in Durham, this geological re-survey of the Moor House region was started in 1954. The survey was undertaken by G.A.L. Johnson under a grant by The Nature Conservancy (a forerunner of the Natural Environment Research Council). The original map was mapped on to a base map of 3 inches to the mile. The paper map was digitised by the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (now the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology) in the 1990s. Note that the reserve has been extended to Upper Teesdale, however this map covers the Moor House area only. See online Supporting Information for further details.
