Jury Hill is a prominent landmark visible from the A127 London Arterial Road. It consists of London Clay and the slopes are covered with coarse grass and small bushes.
The southern and western slopes have been affected by fairly well-marked, successive landslips which have produced irregular undulations (Hutchinson 1965).
The hill is typical of unstable slopes in London Clay and the landslips have been occurring for thousands of years since the retreat of the ice. Around the hill the slips often result in minor exposures of London Clay.
