Will it fall or not?

Part of the cliff at Sandymouth was collapsed onto the beach to make it safer to sit under.

Over the past 8 years a small part of the cliff near the entrance to Sandymouth beach has shown no signs of moving but with this year’s¬†winter storms a crevice had been eroded away behind the cliff face.

Whether this might cause the face to fall away is difficult to say but even with ‘rockfall’ warning signs,¬†the public still sit beneath this part of the cliff.¬†¬†¬†Normally we would prefer to work with natural processes but we¬†felt removal of the face would help to reduce the risk of¬†possible injury in this case.

It just shows that even on a fairly hard rock coast line we still get erosion taking place
