Clay every time for me....supports a wider range of nutrients whilst the others leach theirs out.

Interesting points spongebob, but I'm a big fan of flint. True it's not much use in soil, but handy for arrow/spear heads & wall construction.

Definitely chalk for making that horrible noise on a blackboard.
Definitely flint for walls (except Baxter's flats)
Definitely clay for my roses, or is that s**t, never could tell the difference according to some!!
All good Sussex stuff.

its got to be clay. The clay content of the Weald mud was the difficult foot, horse or cart crossing that effectively insulated the south east from London and government influence before sealed roads. Its why Lewesians still have an admirable separatist/anti-authoritarian air seen most obviously at Bonfire.

Chalk. The downs are nice and chalky, as is the soil around Plumpton college. The wildlife likes it!
