Creator: George Cumberland (1754-1848)
Description: One of two drawings given to the Society on 6 November 1812 accompanying a communication by Cumberland ‘relative to the limestone strata in the neighbourhood of Bristol’.
The caption reads: “From hence there is a good opportunity afforded to take the inclination of the surface which is so small an angle that I will not give it without careful measuring – The general Dip is as near as possible at an angle of 45 degrees.”
