SSSI Name Poole Bay Cliffs
Primary Photo
Description

The western cliffs present sections in the Bournemouth Freshwater Beds which provide an unparalleled opportunity for the sedimentologist to study the point-bar and channel-plug deposits of large meandering river systems. The beds are of early to mid-Eocene age and have yielded a diverse fossil flora. Eastwards they pass laterally into the very different shallow marine and offshore sediments of the Isle of Wight, and are therefore important in the palaeographic reconstruction of the Hampshire Basin.

Interest Biological, Geological
Status Now Featured on NoD
My Notes Although the name implies Poole this SSSI is a collection of fragments of land along the cliffs of Bournemouth, Boscombe and Southbourne
