View north in the future Bredon Hill area around the time the Charmouth Mudstone Formation was being deposited.

Deep water, but full of sediment in suspension, making the water murky. The sea bed would be well below the reach of the base of storm waves, so it would provide a sheltered place where invertebrates could burrow in the soft mud. The resulting rock is termed bioturbated and will lack internal structures like layering as all the sediment has been worked over by the burrowing creatures before it became lithified (turned into rock)

At this time the nearest land northward was probably in the region of what today we know as southern Scotland.
