Interactive Geology of UK: finding out more about the Geology of Northwich

As some of you might be away, I have recently been looking into the Geology of Northwich, Cheshire, where I live.

Interactive Geology of UK, including boreholes are available through the BGS here:

It is really easy to use and surface features (e.g. faults) can be overlain on the maps, as well as boreholes and wells with associated data to view online where available!

It is a great resource which will be of immense use for some of the private projects I am starting in the near future.
