A molluscan fauna typical of cold conditions has been found in the Cainscross terrace of the Frome river valley near Stroud, Gloucestershire, western England. The lithology and vertebrate fauna confirm the postulation of a cold environment. The age is probably that of the Irish Sea glaciation (main phase of the last glaciation).
