Jarvis & Woodroof (1984) gave a detailed account of the lower part of the Chalk Group in south-east Devon, formally subdividing the succession into Formations and Members, and recognising key marker beds of value for local and regional correlation. A skeletal account of a revised lithostratigraphical nomenclature for the remainder of the Chalk Group of south-east Devon was given by Jarvis & Tocher (1987). The unified details of these schemes are as follows:

FORMATION MEMBER
Ramsgate Chalk
Formation
Broadstairs
St Margarets
Seaton Chalk
Formation
Beer Roads
Flinty Chalk
Connett's Hole
Nodular Chalk
Beer Head
Limestone
Formation
Pinnacles Glauconitic Limestone
Little Beach Bioclastic Limestone
Hooken Nodular Limestone
Pounds Pool Sandy Limestone
