Definition of clint in English:
A block forming part of a natural limestone pavement, separated from others by fissures (grikes).
- The solution of vertical joint sets into grikes characteristically fragments the pavement surface into blocks known as clints.
- A couple of digging trips resulted in the opening of Small Mammal Pot in a patch of clints a few metres south-east of the main shakehole.
- The top of SMH is marked as being five metres below the surface, and the entrance in Stile Pot is 4m below the clints, and descends a further 4m.
