Description: Red Cliff, from foreshore, Sandown Bay. Looking NW. Lower Greensand at Red Cliff. Slipped Atherfield Clay overlapping beach on the left. The cliff in view is mostly in the Ferruginous Sands, of which the full thickness (367? ft.) is seen. The light-tinted bed appearing nearly half-way up the cliff on extreme right is the lowest member of the Sandrock Series. The principal 'Coprolite bed' with rolled phosphatic casts of Oolite fossils, 47? ft. below the Sandrock, rises from the beach about midway between the right-hand limit of the view and the big heap of fallen rock.
