On the foreshore at Cliff End, the peaty remains of a submerged forest can be seen. This forest grew below the cliffs at Pett some 6000 years ago at a time when sea level was about 30 m lower than today. A rise in sea level gradually flooded the forest; the remains of which can be seen at low tide.
