Fossilised wood, The Naze
Fossilised wood, The Naze
Close up of material washed out of the lower layers of the seacliff. The dark twisted material is fossilised wood. Sharks teeth can also be found sometimes.
The cliffs at the Naze are a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest. The cliffs 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 site is renowned for its early bird fossils, hence its SSSI designation.
