Area: 0.6 hectares.


An old quarry providing sedimentologically interesting exposures in late Namurian sandstones. The section contains some problematical trace fossils which are currently under investigation, but is mainly of importance for its excellent display of soft-sediment deformation features and turbidite induced scours. Some fine examples of squamiform loading are present and a field of flute marks which ranks as one of the best in the country. A key site for sedimentological studies in the Carboniferous.
