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:

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