Cliff face, Bempton
Cliff face, Bempton
This almost pure limestone was laid down in the Upper Cretaceous period between 70-90 million years ago in a warm, sub-tropical sea and contains the fossils of sea-urchins, brachiopods and bivalves. The chalk in this area is much harder than that in southern Britain. Seabirds are starting to nest on the cliff face.
