Marine charts show hundreds of wrecks all within a few miles radius of Thornwick Bay. Much more information can be found in the book "Shipwrecks off the Yorkshire Coast".
The coastline here has been created due to the fault lines which cut through chalk rock and have allowed erosion to take place at different rates. This has created a rugged coastline with many bays and coves along with a profusion of geological features. Low tide reveals the wave cut platform at the base of the cliffs.
