Chalk stack, Botany Bay
Chalk stack, Botany Bay
This is the smaller of two chalk stacks on Botany Bay north of Kingsgate on the north Kent coast. Originally joined to the mainland these two outlying lumps of rock have gradually been eroded by the action of the sea over millennia, stranding them a few yards from the main cliffs. Before becoming isolated stacks they probably arched across to the main cliffs much as TR3970 : Whiteness Arch still does. The second larger stack is almost completely hidden by this smaller one from this angle, but can be seen peeping out behind it both on the left and right.
The little red sign bottom right warns beachgoers that they could get cut off by the incoming tide. See TR3971 : Chalk Stacks, Botany Bay to see the two stacks together.
