This study outlines the stratigraphical succession of the micro and macro-faunal assemblages of the Hunstanton Red Rock and compares these successions with those already well defined for the more ubiquitous Gault Clay facies of the Middle/Upper Albian Stage (Lower Cretaceous), from the sequence at Copt Point, Folkestone (Price, 1977 and Hart, 1973). The correlation established is used to infer the equivalent Albian ammonite subzones for the Hunstanton Red Rock, and its stratigraphical context in relation to the underlying Carstone and the overlying Chalk. Characteristics of the Red Rock depositional environment are also considered.
