The Southfield lane 'dogleg'-Ulrome
The Southfield lane 'dogleg'-Ulrome
The 'dogleg' on Southfield Lane. From this point southwards the road has all gone, the reason for this is that the waves that come from the North Sea hit the shore not at 90 degrees but obliquely on this eastern coast region and the action of these erosive forces are greatly governed by the angle at which these waves hit the cliffs, which is why there is this bit of road left. But where it turns slightly it has long gone, because the angle of the wave action that hits it is more pronounced, accelerating the erosion.
