Summary:The section at the regionally important Golden Hill site, which exposes up to 25m of Upper Kimmeridge Clay, is detailed and the ammonite faunas assessed. The site has recently been designated an SSSI by English Nature. Comparison with the Dorset type section confirms that it spans the mid-Hudlestoni Zone to the mid-Pectinatus Zone. The vertical ranges of some Pectinatites species appear to be more extensive than in Dorset. A species closely similar to P.(V.) smedmorensis occurs much higher in the succession of Golden Hill than in Dorset.
