Beachy Head Cliffs Puzzle
About the game
One of the most iconic views in southern England, Beachy Head is the highest chalk cliff in Britain, rising 162m above the sea. What makes these magnificent cliffs awesome is not just just their beauty, but how they came into existence. They are made up of the compressed shells of billions of generations of microscopic shellfish which once floated in the sea, died, and sank to the ocean floor. Their shells formed a very thin layer over the seabed. Slowly, millimetre by millimetre, over the course of 30 million years, this layer of shells grew to become more than 400 metres thick, compressed by massive forces into chalk. I feel humble alongside these cliffs. Use your mouse to play this game.
