  1. You are right, Emma. The lower rocks may even have had a head-start in the erosion stakes because very near to this location, at a raised level, there is an ancient preserved version of this kind of dissolution known as a palaeokarst surface. I once climbed up there to see it. It is beneath the inclined strata that you can see in this photograph at the top.

    Here is a link to a post showing the palaeokarst surface. In the context shot I am sitting at the junction of the mudstone strata on the right and the palaeokarst surface to my left – maybe at a height about twenty feet above the beach level.
