TG1943 : Cliff below Wood Hill

near to East Runton, Norfolk, Great Britain

Cliff below Wood Hill
Cliff below Wood Hill
The white chalk rafts seen in the cliff section on the approach to and directly below Wood Hill were shaped by ice, raising up to 40 metres above beach level. The chalk is composed of calcium carbonate from the remains of microscopic marine organisms that once lived in a warm shallow sea which covered this area between 62 and 132 million years ago. Layers of flint pebbles can be seen embedded in the chalk > LinkExternal link. LinkExternal link
