Surveying the Cliffs near Charmouth after the Winter Storms

On Friday I headed down to Dorset to spend some quality time with my family.  On Saturday we headed down to the beach at Charmouth to survey the results of the winter storms. The mouth of the char was open to the sea and there was clearly a lot of debris on the banks of the river. There had clearly been a great deal of movement in the cliffs with a large number of mudflows on to the beach. The cliffs towards Golden Cap looked to be in a pretty dangerous state. The shape of the beach had also changed and there was a great deal more sand – I wan’t sure if this had been washed down from Lyme Regis or had just been uncovered. The rest of the weekend was spent in Fishpond with my family.
