Dean Hill Anticline
The anticline runs west 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) from the River Test near Lockerley along the northern rim of the Hampshire Basin, to the south of a narrow strip of palaeogene rocks, the Alderbury-Mottisfont Syncline. At the eastern end under the Test Valley it is cut by the northward-swinging Portsdown Anticline. At the western end to the south-east of Salisbury the structure is cut by the Mere Fault.
Hills include Witherington Down, Pepperbox Hill and Dean Hill.
