Detail of cliffs at the Naze
The cliffs at the Naze are a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest. They are constantly slumping and eroding due to layers of Red Crag and Tertiary and Quaternary sediments overlaying London Clay.
Due to the difference in their consistency and age these erode at different rates and reveal many different sorts of fossil.
The London Clay can be seen running out into the beach at the base of the cliff. This material is about 50 million years old and is renowned for its early bird fossils, hence the site's SSSI designation.
