The Cliffs at Hunstanton

The rocks exposed along the 1.5km stretch of cliff and beach at Hunstanton date from the Albian Stage of the Early Cretaceous period c.108 mya to the Cenomanian Stage of the Late Cretaceous period c.99 mya. The geology features three distinctive formations of marine origin - the Carstone Formation (orange) at the cliff base, followed above by the Hunstanton Formation (red) formerly known as the Red Chalk, and the Ferriby Chalk (white) extending to the cliff-top
