Palaeoecological and sedimentological analysis has been applied in the study of Lower Carboniferous Waulsortian 'reefs' exposed in the Manifold Valley, North Staffordshire and in the Meuse Vallley in southern Belgium. Because Waulsortian 'reefs' have similar faunal, lithological and palaeogeographical characteristics in all of their occurrences it is argued that conclusions drawn from the Manifold and Meuse Valleys are applicable to the facies as a whole.
