Excerpt from The Geology of the Country Near Fareham and Havant
No rocks older than the Sandgate Beds are known to have been reached in any local boring, but it is highly probable that the inferior members of the Lower Greensand, and the Weald Clay, which crop out near Rogate... immediately to the north, and also in the Isle of Wight about 12 miles to the south, underlie the Upper Cretaceous through-out the district. It is little less prob able that the Wealden Beds pass down into the Purbeck, which elsewhere in the south of England rests on Portlandian strata, and these in turn on older stages of the upper Jurassic Series. The descending succession may well resemble that seen on the Dorset coast; and, in any case, it is likely that the Cretaceous Beds are separated by a great thickness of older Secondary sedi ments from the sunken platform of Primary or Palaeozoic rocks below. The chances in favour of Coal Measures being met with at a workable depth are, therefore, discouragingly small.
