Ball clay extraction in Dorset. Quarries close to chalk. I seem to remember that this ball clay is predominately kaolinite. Generally associated with the chemical breakdown (meta somatic) of feldspar in granite. As in China clay. This stuff could have been transported and deposited by rivers.
King Alfred's Way is a 350km circular off-road adventure route through 10,000 years of history, connecting some of England’s most iconic sites. The name of the trail is inspired by Alfred the Great, who ruled the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex.
King Alfred's Way starts and ends in Winchester where Alfred is buried, and connects iconic monuments including Stonehenge, Avebury stone circle, Iron Age hill forts, Farnham Castle, and Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals.
