Area of overhanging rock strata running at right-angles to the sea, with gullies open to NW, often sandy-bottomed. Lower part of wave-cut platform, with upper beach comprising large and very dynamic pebble ridge backed by high cliffs. Erosion of softer rock has created many shady crevices.
Often found under stones and amongst seaweed in rock-pools. Full-sized adults and plentiful juveniles. Robert Durrant
