This field guide was produces to accompany the QRA and Engineering Group of the Geological Society Field Meeting to Kent, based in Margate, 10th–12th June 2016. The meeting and accompanying field guide focus on selected aspects of Kent's periglacial legacy and their engineering geological significance. The key themes considered are (1) brecciation of chalk bedrock by ice segregation in permafrost, producing a variety of chalk weathering grades; (2) deformation of soil and rock by frost heave and thaw consolidation, forming involutions; (3) slope instability in sandstone-mudstone sequences, forming gulls and cambered strata; (4) reactivation of relict periglacial shears in clay-rich head deposits; and (5) loess characteristics and metastability.
