At the top of the main cliff of the Salisbury Crags, the teschenite sill very close to its upper contact is exposed and is seen to contain vesicles which, in places, are arranged in trains as a result of late magmatic movement. Patches of altered sediment, of Cementstone age, lie upon the teschenite a few metres east of the Crags and the teschenite here is locally cut by veins of dark tachylyte. To the south and east of this locality the sill splits up into a number of leaves separated by thin layers of intervening sediment.
