Description: Viewpoint, about 1/2 m. S. of Shipton Gorge. Looking NE. Shipton Hill, and scenery near Shipton Gorge. Viewed from Cornbrash ridge south of Shipton Gorge village. Dip-slope of Cornbrash in foreground passing under Oxford Clay which is faulted off just south of Shipton Church (on left). The church stands on Inferior Oolite which terminates against the fault to the right. The distant flat topped hill (Shipton Hill) is an outlier of Greensand, the upper part sharpened to form an ancient camp rampart. The lower slopes are Fuller's Earth Clay.
