SX3353 : The Coastal Slope

taken 12 years ago, 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.
