This disused quarry is a regionally important SSSI geological locality that exposes a sequence through the Great Oolite Series (Middle Jurassic) deposited between 167 to 164 million years ago, during the Bathonian to lower-most Callovian times – when this part of Oxfordshire was covered with warm, tropical seas.
