Description.

This site is important in illustrating some of the facies variations which occur in the Devonian sedimentary rocks of south Devon. This locality provides a good exposure of the topmost Chudleigh Limestone (Frasnian) and displays well the transition from a carbonate platform environment, with a rich coral fauna, to a deeper water environment, with goniatites. The goniatite bearing horizon, the Lower Dunscombe Goniatite Band, is useful for local correlation in the Chudleigh area.
