Cheltenham Badlands (Red Clay Hills)
The Cheltenham Badlands is an outcrop of Queenston shale that is badly eroded, creating a small but impressive "badland" like those of southern Alberta. The badland may have developed when the land was cleared. The overlying topsoil washed away, exposing the clay, which then succumbed to the forces of erosion.
