The Flats, Kimmeridge Bay
The Flats, Kimmeridge Bay, taken 9 years ago
This wave-cut platform is The Flats dolomite bed. The bed makes a brief appearance here at sea level, just over 200 metres wide, due to the Kimmeridge Bay anticline. There is another 200 metre stretch of The Flats further to the west in the bay, beyond a fault which brings the dolomite bed back to sea level again. The Wytch Farm 'nodding donkey' oil well is up on top of the cliff behind this section of The Flats.
