Site Description A small area of peat is occasionally exposed after significant beach lowering. The peat is reporetd to be about 0.25m deep and overlies grey clayey silt. The western sea-ward edge is eroded, but landward it runs back beneath the upper storm beach. A piece of horizontal round-wood about 10cm dia (probably a root) was sampled and dated.
