Short characteristics of the site: Flood plain of a riverlet Hvozdnice with surrounding small quarries. The outcrops expose flysh-like sequence of the Kulm age. Clayey shales and siltstone prevail over fine grained greywackes. In the river channel, rocky basement is overlain by Pleistocene fluvial gravel.
