SY7780 : White Nothe Cliff

taken 5 years ago, near to Holworth, Dorset, Great Britain

White Nothe Cliff
White Nothe Cliff
This is the southern end or Nose of the main White Nothe Cliff which runs north south and faces west towards Weymouth Bay. It consists of chalk layers. The main bulk of the cliff is just round the corner out of sight. This is the view from the smuggler's path which zig zags down a very steep grassy cliff to the undercliff below. The path itself is visible here in the bottom centre of the image. The undercliff can be seen on the left. As can be seen during my visit the path was very overgrown due to lack of walking. The position of the path has changed many times over the years.
