    mainly clay cliffs so there has been a lot undercutting of the cliff plus long shore drift doesnt help. you can see how much the cliff has disappered just by looking at the old pill boxes from ww2 (i think) since they now sit in the sea a fair distance away.

    however they have tried rip-rap, beach nourishment and then groynes for the longshore drift.

    hope that helps. you could get some information from google im sure if you need more info that i have given you above about walton-on-the-naze

    edit: not much on weathering, more on the sea. They have also regraded the cliff due to a huge issue of free-thaw weatering, and then have put a mesh on the regraded part to help hold the cliff together- im not sure what its called since i havent done weathering in so long.
