After tea visit the fine section of Keuper and Rhaetic rocks. The section forms a gentle anticline the upper beds being accessible only at the southern. end. Several faults traverse the strata and each brings in apatch of Lower Lias which owing to its resistent character is responsible for the little promontory which accompanies each fault. All the horizons can be readily examined in fallen blocks. The Bone Bed for which the Aust section is so famous is a discontinuous band. The lower part of the Keuper series in the core of the anticline is noteworthy for the abundant gypsum and for a layer containing pseudomorphs after rock salt. Drive back to Bristol arriving about 8.0. Cost of drive.
