Description: Lewes Cement and Lime Works. Quarry, Southerham. Looking NE. Southerham Pit. Quarry in the river-bluff on left bank of River Ouse, south-east, of Lewes. The river (invisible) crosses the field of view on the hither side of the row of white fence-posts. Alluvial plain of The Brooks in the foreground. The quarry is in Middle and Upper Chalk; the junction being marked approximately by the lower edge of the dark square of ivy towards the right of section. Thereabouts the bedding dips 20 degrees NNW, but becomes horizontal at the left-hand limit of the view, which about coincides with the axial place of the Mt. Caburn syncline.
