Old Harry's Rock

I visited this rock formation way back in the summer, viewing it from the sea!

The rocks are caused by the erosion of waves, which attack the weak joints in the rock, forming arches and caves. Eventually they collapse leaving isolated stacks like 'Old harry'.

The rocks in this area are chalk from the Cretatious era of around 65 million years ago
