The Crumbling Cliffs near Cromer: a resent Landslide

The Crumbling Cliffs near Cromer: a resent Landslide

A continual menace to the town of Cromer and the neighbouring seaboard is the side-stream of the tidal current which sets westward into the Wash. As recently as the autumn of 1928, eighty thousand tons of cliff hurtled down at Trimingham village between Cromer and Mundesley; in the foreground of this photograph can be seen the vast gap created by the landslide. This is but one recent instance of the waste that has taken place within living memory, for at this spot the undermining process is peculiarly persistent.
