Hen Cliff from Yellow Ledge
Hen Cliff from Yellow Ledge
Yellow Ledge is the exposed part of a dolomite bed that can be seen here in the cliff, rising to the west (towards Kimmeridge Bay). The stone was once quarried from the cliff near Clavell's Tower and was used to build the old pier below Hen Cliff. Undercutting of the Yellow Ledge dolomite bed has formed a beach of rectangular 'stepping stones' - easier to walk on than the shale debris at the foot of the cliff. It had rained a lot the previous day and the light coloured streaks down the cliff show where water is streaming down; there were frequent falls of small shale fragments and mud.
