The Flats dolomite bed projecting from the cliff, Kimmeridge Bay
The Flats dolomite bed projecting from the cliff, Kimmeridge Bay
The yellow dolomite bed projects from the cliff, with softer mudstone and shales above and below. Boulders of the dolomite lie at the foot of the cliff, a result of under-cutting. Further to the left the bed forms The Flats platform on the beach, and further to the right beyond a fault the Flats appear again on the beach, before disappearing again due to the anticline in the strata.
