Holderness erosion

Took these images of Ringborough Barracks on the Holderness coast shortly before the cliff could no longer support it and down it fell onto the beach.

It was there one day and gone the next!

    Tabfish,

     

    Nice observation and documentation. It was obviously solidly constructed, staying together as much as it did while it made its descent.

     

    Reminds me of similar things I have seen on the Norfolk coast, many years ago. I wonder where the cliffs I was familar with then, have receded to now.

     

    It is obviously terrible for owners of affected land and property. I wonder what happens to the boundaries of the plots of land. Do they remain the same, so the owner ends up owning some beach and sea, I wonder? I suspect not. And what happens where coastal deposition is adding to the land area: I bet land owners don't find their plots formally increasing in size. Somehow, it doesn't seem right that landowners lose out whichever way the coast is moving!
