The Flats dolomite bed projecting from the cliff, Kimmeridge Bay
The Flats dolomite bed projecting from the cliff, Kimmeridge Bay, taken 9 years ago
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.
