"The Dawlish Sandstone Formation of Permian age, about 260 million years old, worked at Bishops Court Quarry displays large scale cross bedding ... These are classic desert dune sands comprising red and yellowish brown, well to moderately-well sorted, medium grain-size sand with occasional layers of fine silty sand and red-brown mudstone ... Many of the sand grains are well rounded and often spherical (‘millet seed’ sand grains) believed to be a characteristic of coarser varieties of wind blown material" LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
