Type and Period (1)
This pit provides excellent exposures in the Homersfield Terrace – the highest terrace of the River Waveney. The deposits comprise gravels and sands, probably in the main glacial outwash, resting on chalky till. The site shows many fine sedimentary structures, including ice-contact slope structures and ice wedge casts. The intimate association with localised flow till indicates an Anglian age. The site is of importance because of its relationship to the deposits of the Broome Terrace and to the type Hoxnian site at Hoxne (HXN 001), (S1).
