SUMMARY

Devonian limestone turbidites from North Cornwall, composed mainly of crinoidal debris, are considered to have been derived from an oceanic rise or schwelle. Large-scale cross-bedding (representing division C) occurs in some limestone bands. The turbidites lack a pelitic division and there is usually a sharp contact with the shales above. Typical flutes are rare but broad grooves and channels are present on the soles.
