The Hastings Beds

Dig down a foot in our garden and you hit impacted sand- pure enough to build castles with. This means that not so long ago- just a hop, skip and a jump in geologic time- our part of South-Eastern England was under water. Wikipedia tells me that if one were lucky one might find plesiosaur bones in the mix- and that the proper name for the formation is The Hastings Beds.
