Classic coastal landform 5 – Old Harry Rocks

This rivals Durdle Door as a favourite for schools in England, perhaps all of the United Kingdom. One of the pictures is the classic view from on top of the cliffs showing the succession in headland erosion – enlarged joints, cave, arch, stack, stump. The other is from the sea ( look out for the kayaker to give scale) looking at the cliff face with Old Harry on the extreme right. Below is a link to a 4 minute BBC Bitesize video explaining all about the processes and landforms. Old Harry chalk cliffs and stacks, Dorset, England
