Kinver Edge

Kinver Edge: SO 831829

The Bridgnorth Sandstone of the Lower Permian is seen in superb three-dimensional exposures at Vale's Rock, Nanny's Rock, and Holy Austin Rock. The Bridgnorth Sandstone displays large-scale, high-angle cross-bedding, indicating winds blowing mainly from the east during Permian times. A number of other characteristic aeolian features are well displayed making this an important site for the elucidation of Permian environments in the English Midlands.
