chalk birthmark smLike a birthmark across the face of England, the chalklands stretch from Lulworth Cove on the south coast to Flanborough Head on the northeast. Huxley gave his famous talk in Norwich, the Thames Estuary cement works supplied lime to London up till the 1970s, the White Cliffs face towards France, Giants of Albion came out of the Observatory being sited at Winchester, and the Isle of Wight has its chalk Needles. So, where does this project go next? Any suggestions?

  1. As I understand it the chalk once formed a land bridge across what is now the channel until a massive ice lake broke through and washed it away. The chalk continues to extend deep into Northern France so perhaps that direction might be interesting.
