SX3353 : The Coastal Slope

near to Downderry, Cornwall, Great Britain

The Coastal Slope
The Coastal Slope
Periglacial weathering processes in the ice age have left many cliff faces in south-east Cornwall with a steep high slope before plunging down into a steep cliff face. This high slope is of little use to modern farmers and so is left to scrub and heathland with lots of gorse, blackthorn and bracken which harbours a lot of wildlife.
