Dorset's Important Geological Sites

Work on Road Section at Upwey

On Saturday 9 April, despite some typical April weather, some members of the DIGS group worked on the road section at Upwey which exposes the top of the Portland Beds and the base of the Purbeck Beds.

The group last worked on it in the summer of 2012 so some weeding was needed. Further work is planned higher up the sequence. See before and after pictures:
