Caught on camera, collapse of a giant cliff at Cornwall.
www.telegraph.co.uk...

Nothing much too say else.
Just watch.




Last time such an event happened nearby was in 1999 Beachy Head cliffs, Sussex.

Hah! I live only three miles from there. It happens lots here.

The coastline here is very beautiful.

Very dramatic, the roaring ocean and the steep granite cliffs.

Excellent

This was rather a big chunk of rock?
I live at the other side of the ocean, down south. We have very similar coastal rocks down here.
Many times big rocks on the shore, cliffs collapses too.

As i witnessed this over time from one day to another.
Hmm yesterday this big rock wasn't down here, but up here?

Always missed it live though.

Don't worry, the sea will take care of that

How did they know it was going to collapse? with the guy saying "there it goes" when a tiny bit of rock crumbles and then once more in a not very surprised voice as the cliff gives way they must have known what was about to happen.

Not much to add except thanks for that. Pretty cool they caught that and shared it. I'm sure coastlines everywhere don't remain stagnant, that stuff like this happens all the time but I live in the desert, nowhere near a coast and would probably never see anything like this ever.

Mother Nature will be footing the bill on this one I'm sure.
She will do a beautiful job planting shrubs and grass.
In about a year it will be a stunning site.

From the beginning of the video you can already see the crack and some parts down, crashing into the sea.
I guess there were some other signs before they started recording.

She does the best landscaping jobs I've ever had the pleasure of seeing

pretty groovy to watch... certainly makes it easier to imagine it happen to the island volcano of La Palma now.

It does give one pause. How many times do we stand on the edge of a precipice, shaking in our boots, thinking "oh what if it lets go", and then, "oh no its solid", ignoring the fact that the cliff is a cliff because it keeps shearing off.

I'm not sure there will be a next time for me ... that is just crazy!

That was very interesting, thanks for posting it. Fascinating to see Nature's landscaping as it happens.

Whenever I get the chance, I love to go walking around the Dorset/Devon/Cornwall coast area. Always lots of warning signs on the clifftop paths and beaches about this sort of thing, but I've never actually seen it happen until now, so thank you.

I bet the fossil hunters were there in droves afterwards.

HaHa! I'm a fossil collector myself, but I normally target large pebbles or big lumps of rock rather than cliff faces, as the cliffs are rather unstable and none too safe in those parts. I've heard of a few getting into bother with the cliffs down there.

I try not to get too close to them, but I'm sure not everyone is quite so cautious, so I'd bet you're right.
