The Raddon Hills

Afternoon transient light around the graceful Raddon Hills, in mid-Devon. These are a long ridge of high ground running east to west, with a summit at 235m that looks south over the Creedy vale to Exeter.

The ridge summit is comprised of Cadbury Breccia - from the Permian era. The Permian geologic period extends from 298.9 to 252.17 million years ago. The land here was desert all those aeons ago, a far cry from this current green and pleasant bucolic idyll.
