NO6641 : The Blowhole, Seaton Cliffs

The Blowhole, Seaton Cliffs
The Blowhole, Seaton Cliffs
The Blowhole has developed through a series of stages. Firstly, the sea has eroded along the line of a joint in the Lower Old Red Sandstone to create a cave. Partial collapse of the roof then resulted in the present day Blowhole. Although the Blowhole is approximately 15 metres above sea level, surf and sea spray rise up the funnel during those times when there are very high tides and a strong onshore wind. Ultimately the bridge will collapse, probably along the line of the fault seen in the photo, and the evolution of the Blowhole will have moved on.
