About 4-5 thousand fell on the shore and the sea. Tons of sand and rocks. Lots of people in the area have decided to see the landslide up close, but local authorities warn that getting close to the cliff is dangerous.
Due to heavy rains in recent days, the likelihood of more landslides is high. Other large rock fragments can break apart at any time. Access to this area is partially fenced, and many curious people approach it anyway.
“The Jurassic Coast is constantly eroding. It created the beautiful coastline we see today, but it is important to remember that falling rocks and landslides are part of the process. Please use common sense and caution and always pay attention to warning signs and news about how to stay safe,” we read on the Jurassic Coast website Trust on the web.
The Jurassic Coast is part of the north coast of the English Channel as well as the southern coast of England. It stretches from Exmouth Village in East Devon to Studland in Dorset. It is 154 km long and is listed by UNESCO. There you can see unique geological structures of great importance for understanding our planet’s past.
