Abstract. Foraminifera and Ostracoda are recorded from two Mesozoic fissures in the Eastern Mendips (Cloford and Holwell). The microfaunas are indicative of the Early Sinemurian (bucklandi–semicostatum Zones), and provide the first evidence for the former presence of sediments of this age on the Mendip “swell”.
