Crumbling limestone cliffs of Emmetts Hill, Isle of Purbeck
Crumbling limestone cliffs of Emmetts Hill, Isle of Purbeck
These limestone cliffs are geologically similar to those on the Isle of Portland, to which they were once joined. The cliff is prone to landslides and mudslides; just left of the centre is a stone topple which will fall before too long.
