Portledge Cliffs
Portledge Cliffs
The cliffs of West Devon are mainly Carboniferous sandstones and limestones. These stretch back to the Devonian shales and sandstones of North Devon. However at Portledge there is a small section of the younger Permian 'New Red' sandstones. These New Red sandstones are more commonly associated with South Devon, ie the cliffs between Dawlish and Teignmouth.
