Anticlinal Fold

Now there’s a word that doesn’t come into daily use. Woody is used to hitting the brakes when I shout “What the hell is that?” But this bit of rock took us by surprise. We weren’t quite sure what it was but gee we’re glad we saw it.

The plaque reads:

Anticlinal Fold

This fine exhibit was discovered when

Lyttleton Street East was constructed

in 1874.

Saddle reefs occur in similar folds of the

sandstones and slates on lower

geological horizons.
