This is a spectacular example of dextral shear kinematic indicators.
You can see in the ‘squashed pods’ the sense of movement is from the left hand side of the photo towards the right. This therefore suggests that it has a top-to-the-right sense of movement. Cool, huh?
The rather spectacular structures are in Devonian limestones near Hopes Nose in Torquay, deformed during the Variscan Orogeny in the Carboniferous.
