Limestone strata

BA1GKSThis photo was taken by Gary Smith from NHVSS in December. We are facing east looking over Slocombe’s cave from the farmhouse on the hill. On previous visits to this place the ground was covered by pasture grass and other weeds so that the bedding plane of the limestone was obscured. Cattle had grazed most of it and exposed the rock to show the underlying formation extending back towards the other cave. (BA2)
