It is not known whether the Precambrian of the Charnwood Forest area was emergent; there is some geophysical evidence to the northeast of Charnwood Forest for the presence of a post-Charnian, pre-Triassic succession that possibly represents part of the local Cambrian (Maguire 1987). A positive area in northern Norfolk was formerly postulated on the presence of supposedly Precambrian volcanic rocks encountered in the North Creak Borehole, but these are now thought to be part of the east Midlands Caledonian Belt (Pharaoh et al.
