Dry Sandford Nature Reserve

Dry Sandford Pit is an attractive BBOWT nature reserve, in a former quarry exposing Upper Jurassic Corallian sandstones and limestones (140 million years old). The sedimentary sequence here differs from other local Corallian exposures, making correlations difficult. We will consider the paleo-environmental significance and look at lateral variations along the 150m length of the exposures.
