The site is to the east of the parish, located on a sewage works site to the south of Belstead Brook. It is a nationally important reference site for the study of the Pleistocene, providing a record of the buildup of sediment and organic material during the last inter-glacial period.[2] The site was discovered during excavation of the sewage works site and was designated in 1987.[2]
