Cliff erosion at the Naze
Cliff erosion at the Naze
The base of the cliffs at the Naze consists mainly of London clay, the grey-coloured material in this photograph. Above the clay is Red Crag, which is much younger, and softer. It is the Red Crag which tends to erode first. The crack in the cliffs at this point is in the Red Crag, although there is no clear division between the two layers, as there is at other points in the cliff.
