Chalk Group macrofossils collected during field work in March 2003 demonstrate the occurrence of lower Seaford Chalk Formation in old pits at [SU 2360 6930] and [SU 2274 6927], and this horizon can also probably be inferred from a field brash fauna collected by A R Farrant at [SU 2452 7021]. The middle Seaford Chalk is suggested by the sparse macrofauna collected from a pit at [SU 3104 7008]. The lower Newhaven Chalk Formation was proved in a temporary excavation at [SU 3868 6687] and an old chalk pit at [SU 3439 6449], and the higher part of this formation occurs in an old pit at [SU 3536 6405] and possibly also at [SU 3552 6404].
