Seven Sisters Walk. Chalk geology

The Chalk cliffs in the South East define the edge of the country in a dramatic manner.  If you stand on the beach at Cuckmere Haven in Sussex,  when you look up the cliffs look like white towers against the blue sky.

But the chalk formations does not stop in the cliffs, it runs underneath the Channel and reappears as another set of white cliffs, which the French call the Côte d’Albâtre  or the Alabaster Coast. These cliffs at the other side of the English Channel were much painted by Monet, Pissarro and Renoir. Chalk, which the English often seem to think as peculiarly their own, also spreads its realm under northern France, and sporadically in places of Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Germany.
