The Great Oolite Group is a Middle Jurassic stratigraphic unit that outcrops in southern England. It consists of a complex set of marine deposits primarily mudstone and bioclastic ooidal and fine grained limestone, deposited in nearshore to shelf settings. [1] It is exposed at the surface as a variably thick belt extending roughtly NE-SW from the coast of Dorset up to the Humber. Jurassic. The oldest rocks that occur at the surface in the county of Rutland are the mudstones and limestones of the early Jurassic Lias are overlain to the east by a middle Jurassic sequence involving limestones, sandstones and mudstones of the Inferior Oolite Group and the succeeding Great Oolite Group with numerous outliers of the former occurring around Rutland Water . The Frodingham ore is in the lower lias (zone of amonites semicostatum), the Cleveland ore in the middle lias (ammonites spinatim) as are the marlstones of Leicester, Oxford and Banbury, whilst the Northamptonshire ore of South Lincs., Rutland and Northamptonshire is at the base of the inferior oolite (ammonites scissum).

The connection of the Northamptonshire Inferior Oolite with the Hook Norton (Oxfordshire) type has not been clearly defined, though Professor J. w.

The distribution of stone types (Fig. 5) may therefore owe much to Roman building activity. The two main types of stone, both of them oolitic limestones, came from outside the area, one, Barnack stone, from the Inferior Oolite of Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire, the .
