Faunal evidence presented in 1961 by E. B. Selwood appeared to suggest an inverted succession of Devonian-Carboniferous beds facing south in the California quarry at Boscastle, southwestern England. To determine the possible role of minor structures in the regional interpretation, a brief study was made in the small quarry on the cliff top nearby. The minor structures found could be expected to be associated with recumbent tight folds with an axial plane and plunge to the northwest, but none was found. The facing direction of the beds, moreover, is not south but slightly west of southwest.
