Other Information: 

This is a new site.
A Geological Conservation Review site. 

Area: 0.205  hectares.

Description and Reasons for Notification: 

This site exposes a good section through fossiliferous Devonian limestones notable for their coral and conodont faunas, of mid-late Givetian age. This site is of importance in interpreting the changing palaeoecology of the area in mid-Devonian times. Richmond Walk illustrates the transition from black argillaceous limestones to massive, grey stomatoporoid limestones, indicating a shallowing of the sea locally during the Givetian.
