The relation of this survey of the palaeomagnetism of the geological column in Great Britain to the problems of polar wandering and continental drift is discussed. Reference is made to similar results in the U.S.A. which show that the hypothesis of polar wandering explains the results obtained. There is also evidence for a relative movement of 1000 miles between America and Europe since Triassic times. The results also provide further evidence for reversals of the geomagnetic field.
