Fair lights

Generally the surface geology gets younger as you travel from NW to SE Britain, but the Weald breaks this rule... it's an anticline, a sort of eruption that exposes older layers than the surrounding chalk.  Here's where the Weald meets the sea, forming these sandstone cliffs to the east of Hastings. The Hastings Beds are from the early Cretaceous; about 140 million years old.
