A view westwards down Hope Valley in Derbyshire from Stannage Edge showing elements of the submerged Carboniferous petroleum system explored in the East Midlands. Proximal Namurian gritstones overlay pro-delta turbidites which in turn overlay the organic rich Edale/Bowland shales which are currently being explored for shale gas and provide oil and gas charge to most of the UK onshore petroleum system (e.g. East Midlands).
