Rock Edge: This Victorian quarry exposes an Upper Jurassic coral-rich limestone known as the Coral Rag, believed to be 145 million years old. At that time Oxfordshire was covered by a warm, shallow sea. Similar conditions are found in the Bahama Banks today. Coral Rag is rich in fossil remains from corals reefs.
