This small village situated at a bend in the River Avon gets its name from the cliff formed by the rivers erosion of the adjacent Marlcliff Hill. In the cliff there is exposed a geological sequence through the Triassic Blue Anchor Formation (formerly the Tea Green Marls) up into the overlying Westbury Formation of the Penarth group. The area was probably known for mining of marl. Marl is clay which has a content of calcium carbonate and was used to improve the fertility of arable land.
