East Sussex Local Geological Sites - Coastal Section Fairlight Cove

View along the line of Haddock's Reversed Fault from the wavecut platform. The fault plane dips steeply to the left (south) and at beach level separates massive sandstones on the right from thinner bedded sandstones on the left. It is best exposed where it intersects the Cliff End Sandstone higher in the cliff and further back.
