Narrative

A broad gravel and boulder strewn area flanking Dragon Cove, and extending up to about 10 m above sea level. To the north it ascends to the Williams Point platform, to the south it is bounded by an ice ramp, and rises to the west onto the flank of Gargoyle Bastion. The feature is a major source of petrified wood, which is abundantly strewn over this area. Named by UK-APC (1998) in association with Dragon Cove (q.v.).
