The geology exposed in the area near Bruton station (which opened in 1856 on what is now the Heart of Wessex Line) is from the Bathonian epoch of the Middle Jurassic. The citation for the site describes it as one of the best places in England to demonstrate the stratigraphic distinction of ammonites in the subcontractus zone and the morrisi zone.
