Was an interesting watch...... Takeshi's Castle will have to wait till tomorrow.

I assume this is a Zechstein continuation of the Boulby beds into Germany.

Or the other way round...

Different to the more or less flat deposit at Boulby the potash beds are steeply dipping and heavily folded in this mine and they're working proper stopes.
