View towards the east of a fault in limestone (unit P21) which is of the same generation as the major E.-W. fault. The fault surface is sub-vertical and separates a zone of folded rocks to the south from relatively undeformed rocks to the north. The deformation of the rocks to the south of the fault is known as fault drag.

Scale: height of photograph is ca. 50 cm.
