Coastal Habitat and Processes
Durham's northern coastline is composed of glacial drift lying on a bed
of magnesian limestone. Cliffs up to 80 feet high are washed by the North
Sea and subjected to waves which may have travelled hundreds of miles,
creating the profiles and features which make the coastline so interesting.
This is a coastline offering an interesting range of contrasts for the visitor: erosion, geology, questions of sustainability and economic use.
