In the Lower Coal-measures of Lancashire there are hard siliceous beds known as Gannister. The scenery is varied as a rule, the ground is hilly and somewhat barren though well-wooded in places. In South Wales much of the coal-field is an elevated table-land formed of the central division of hard sandstones known as the Pennant Grit, with deep and picturesque valleys, along the borders of which the coal has been worked in many places by means of levels.
