Using the Cicatricosisporites group of palynomorphs, events raised from ten selected samples from the 'Wealden' of Worbarrow Bay, Dorset, are bracket-correlated with events of similar nature from the Warlingham Borehole, Surrey. Although sedimentation rates appear to have differed, deposition at Worbarrow seems to have continued throughout much of Berriasian to Aptian time as at Warlingham. The constituent data of the events comprised graded comparison records with the use of twelve new biorecords and some of those published by Hughes and Moody-Stuart (1969).
