On top a fossilised tree stump on the coast in the firing range at Tyneham.There is a forest of these on the cliff edge. Well a small wood anyway :) Below shows the way the strata here has been pulverised, presumably by earth movement. Some of the layers shatter as they expand due to relief from the weight bearing down on them being removed by erosion.
