It is a Geological Conservation Review Site because it is the only example in southern England of an ice marginal col-gully cut by glacial meltwater and infilled by a variety of glacial sediments. The Pleistocene deposits include gravels, boulder-beds, sands, and till, overlain by cover sands with erratics of flint and Greensand chert. It has also yielded a number of Jurassic and Cretaceous foraminifera (micro fossils).
