Brief description of site:
Disused chalk pit excavated into the hillside at the junction of two tracks half a kilometre east of Crave Hall Farm. The pit has a 2 metre high cliff of white chalk with about 1 metre of vertical chalk visible above the talus. At the very top of the face appears to be a layer of boulder clay (till) consisting of white chalk pebbles in a light brown clay.
The pit can be seen from the track which is a public footpath but the pit is on private land and permission from the landowner is required for access.
