Lemmings Will Love This Place!

Hey Folks,

.

This post is especially for any of you Lemmings who happen to be reading my post today….so, you don’t need to bother writing to me anymore, in order to complain that I do not try and include the concerns of such small creatures such as yourselves in my posts.

.

You may remember my recent post regarding the amazing collapse of a huge amount of the cliff-side, which took place on Cornwall….amazingly filmed as it happened, by walkers who were about to reach that very spot.

.

It does seem that coastal erosion is going apace now.

.

The latest episode has taken place in Wales, at a caravan park in Porthkerry.

.

The caravan site is one which is set on the cliff edge directly facing the amazing sea views.

The caravans lucky enough to get the best sea views are sited about 6′ from the edge of the cliff, with a 200′ drop down to the shore.

.

It was reported that last week some cracks were noticed in the ground at this edge of the site, and apparently expert advice was sought.

.

Unfortunately, in the early evening of Monday a loud sound was heard, which various witnesses described as sounding just like very loud fireworks suddenly going off.

Then it happened.

A section of ground parallel to the cliff edge, apparently almost 200′ long, suddenly fell away and crashed down to the shore.

.

One woman, who was in her caravan when the ground away moved under it, was in a state of shock as she was helped away to safety.

Luckily, at this time of year most of the holidaymakers have already left the site for the winter months, so most of the caravans directly affected were already empty and no-one was hurt.

Obviously, if the weather had been hot, as it was earlier in the year, there could well have been people sitting in their deckchairs, enjoying the view, a lot nearer to the edge.

.

There are now 14 caravans which have now been left on the very edge of the cliff….or actually hanging out over it.

.

Not the sort of excitement you are looking for, when you are expecting to enjoy a little seaside peace and quiet!

.

Caravans left hanging over the 200ft drop.
.

.

In future I think I shall be a little less keen on getting the best sea view possible when I visit the seaside!!!

.

Have a good day yourself, but hopefully not one with a cliff-hanger type of ending to it!

J,x.
