Northern face, former South Elmsall quarry
Northern face, former South Elmsall quarry
The finest example in Yorkshire of a 255 million year old Permian patch reef. With bryozoan and stromatolic strata, the latter characterised by hummocky layering. An SSSI, with a very helpful information panel. Shame about the flytipping.
