Area: 0.81 hectares.
A Geological Conservation Review site. The site is in Dartmoor National Park.
Description and Reasons for Notification:
This section exposes a complete succession through the Devonian and Carboniferous rocks of the Teign valley. A wide range of lithologies are represented, fossils are present if not abundant, yielding some information and minor folds reflect the overall structural setting of the southerly-dipping sequences. The marine basin in which the rocks accumulated appears to have deepened during the Dinantian but the source of the sediment remains largely speculative. A site of considerable sedimentary and stratigraphic interest with potential for future research.
