Stonebarrow landslide complex 2001. Large landslide blocks become detached from the backscar and gradually disintegrate as they move seaward eventually being transported by mudslides over the near vertical sea-cliffs formed by hard Belemnite Marls. The prominent scarp in the mid-complex is a large pre-1887 rotated block of Upper Greensand that is undergoing disintegration by smaller-scale landslips. A major movement of these blocks seaward over the winter of 2000/01 shunted large quantities of debris over the sea-cliffs.
