Dorset's Important Geological Sites

Portesham Restoration

On 8 October a group of nine DIGS members spent a few hours working on our site at Portesham Farm, Portesham.

The face of the old Rocket Quarry had become rather overgrown but is now in good condition exposing the boundary between the Portland and Purbeck Beds. For further information see the site page.
