Cliff failure and mass movement

 

 

 

The bulbous extremity of a slump pushes onto the shoreline, where a lowered beach allows high tides to scour its foot into low, soft cliffs.

 

A number of slumps are currently emerging from the large amphitheatre below the Naze Tower.

 

One last slump onto the beach!

The concrete pillbox acts as a coastal recession marker.

 

Fine silt and sand overlies some of the clay beach .. the clay being seen on the shoreline.

 

Looking back at the cliff from the pillbox to a landscape of always fresh erosion.

The London Clay basement is being overridden by landslips and mudflows.

 

Here a large sand fall has occurred from the upper part of the cliffs.

 

This was moving! A very mobile - if small - mudflow invades the beach.

At the northern end of the Naze the spoil from dredging Harwich Harbour are almost gone; these low cliffs (1-2 metres) represent some of the last of the material.
