Near Kildale, a small village on the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Railway, not far from the source of the river Leven, a railway cutting close to the station shows, in descending order, the following section.
page 351 note 2 Seamer Carr (once a lake), near Stokesley in Cleveland, when being drained, was found to be a peat bog, from which numerous skulls and antlers of deer, and the skeleton of a large ruminant, are said to have been dug out. A stone celt was also picked up.
page 352 note 1 Young and Bird, in their “Geological Survey,” mention having found in this peat at Hartlepool, the remains of insects, particularly the elytra of beetles.
