Here the Oddicombe breccias of Permain age are faulted against the Devonian Limestones of Petitor
GCR block / key theme: Permian-Triassic
Associated SSSI: Babbacombe Cliffs SSSI
GCR Statement of Interest: "Here the Oddicombe Breccias of Permian age are faulted against the Devonian limestones of Petit Tor. The breccias are poorly sorted sediments and are arranged in crude sheet-like spreads of sediments, (in fining-upwards units) which were deposited by ephemeral floods. Imbrication of particles in some finer units indicates fluvial transport towards the east. The site also includes a cavity and fissure system cut into the limestone and filled by Permian sandstones and siltstones."
