Hunstanton Cliffs

| 0 |  4 

Hunstanton is a popular holiday resort located on the west coast of Norfolk. Along the coast at Old Hunstanton is where you can find cliffs dating back to the cretaceous period.

The cliffs show a snapshot into the history of Britain over millions of years when the cliffs were formed. The cliffs structure includes a top section of white chalk from the late cretaceous period, followed by the middle section of red chalk limestone from the early cretaceous period formed over a duration of 15 million years and the bottom section is formed of carstone which is a sedimentary sandstone conglomerate formed during the cretaceous period.

This collection of photos captures the cliffs and rocks on a sunny day in mid-February when the tide had started to come in.
