Scrablag, Ible Sill near Matlock, Derbyshire. From the T.W. Reader album of photographs of the Geologists' Association excursion to Derbyshire on July 28th 1914, in the G.A. Carreck Archive. An adjacent photograph in the archive states that scrablag is a local name for peculiarly shaped concretions in sand. Scrablag also seems to be a local term in the Isle of Man where it is used for gravels and sands that are cemented into hardpan. Does anyone know of any references to it in Derbyshire?
