“A short distance South of Westoning the coprolite bed of the Lower Greensand is exposed over which is a bed of dark heavy clay which is in its turn capped by a bed of drift sand and gravel. This coprolite bed is worked in several places in the immediate vicinity for its phosphatic nodules and furnishes the usual fossils characteristic of this stratum.” Saunders, J.‘Notes on the Geology of S.Beds.‘ Geol.Mag.iv 1867,pp154-8.
