Twenty one samples from Afton Lodge were examined for calcareous microfossils (Foraminifera and Ostracoda). The near absence of planktonic forms suggests that there was no or only poor access to open oceanic environments, however, cold, fully marine conditions prevailed during sediment accumulation and at times the influence of very shallow and estuarine conditions were observed. Water depth was shallow, although minor variations may be suggested.
