A stack, a natural arch & a sea cave all together.
Sea Stacks
Sea Stacks are pillars of rock found on cliffed coastlines around the country. They are a result of marine erosion and wave attack. Many famous stacks are given names. When a stack has been eroded it becomes a stump, before finally disappearing.
Sea Caves
Sea Caves are one of the first stages in coastal erosion. The waves pick out weaknesses in the rock and enlarge them into caves. Afterwards caves may develop into Natural Arches and Stacks.
Natural Arches
Natural Arches are features of coastal erosion. They are found on cliffed coastlines and result from wave attack punching a hole through a headland. They are temporary features in the landscape, their roofs often collapse leaving stacks.
