Freshly exposed chalk marking erosion on cliff face, Seven Sisters
Freshly exposed chalk marking erosion on cliff face, Seven Sisters
Sandwiched between the exits of two dissolution pipes is a semi-circular mark that is likely to indicate that a fairly recent chalk fall has taken place and in so doing it has exposed a fresh surface of chalk. Other chalk falls look imminent and particularly the area above the two dissolution pipe exits toward the left of the photo.
