Sandy, The Pinnacle Recreation Ground

This site forms an interesting and accessible geomorphological site and fine viewpoint. The bedrock here consists of friable Lower Cretaceous Woburn Sands and it is locally eroded by pedestrians and cyclists. At a larger scale the River Ivel has completely breached the sandstones and formed a broad valley to the west of the hilltop that is floored by the Oxford Clay and mantled with superficial deposits. Further west the low-lying clay vale shows areas of low hills caused by resistant glacial deposits.
