Excerpt from Southampton Mineral and Fossil Society.
Death of a Fossil Site - Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire. This site is an important Middle Eocene exposure and famous for the variety of fossils that can be found. Such is the importance of this site that it was confirmed as an SSSI by English Nature. This site has now been destroyed by Gosport Borough Council. They have completely covered the exposure with large limestone blocks and backfilled with gravel dredged from the Solent.
