Whitburn Bay to Trow Point

Varied Permian sedimentary rocks are exposed in the sea cliffs between Trow Point and Whitburn Bay. These are mainly of the Concretionary Limestone Formation but also include glimpses of the Yellow Sands and Marl Slate in Frenchman's Bay. Extensive exposures of the Raisby Formation between Trow Point and Frenchman's Bay and intermittent views of possible Roker Dolomite, in cliffs and rock platforms from Whitburn southwards. In Northern parts of the site, the Raisby Formation is seen to be overlain by the unusual and exceptionally persistent Trow Point Bed.
