A one-day Geologists' Association field excursion to the Bawdsey Peninsula in coastal Suffolk is described, with a guided tour of 'The Pliocene Island' at Sutton Knoll and visits to examine coastal erosion, the London Clay and Red Crag at Bawdsey East Lane, and the Red Crag at Alderton and Ramsholt. The depositional environments indicated by the Crag sediments and faunas are discussed, and non-derived Red Crag mollusc faunas at Sutton and sand-wave mollusc assemblages from Ramsholt are described.
