Abstract: Periglacial sands and breccias are described as overlying a marine platform with a notch and cave at Holly Lane, Clevedon. The sequence of periglacial deposits is believed to represent local climatic fluctuations during the last (Devensian) stage. The contained Mollusca and foraminiferid fossils are described and former records discussed. The buried littoral features are attributed to the Ipswichian interglacial stage and represent a maximum height of wave activity in the order of 20 m O.D.
