Do chalk cliffs erode easily?
"The cliffs (of Dover on the Brittish Coast) themselves are still under attack from the sea as its continuous flow eats away at the soft chalk at the base of the cliffs. About 2-5cm on average are lost each year, but more than a metre can be lost in one large cliff fall, and as sea-levels rise the cliffs will probably retreat more quickly"...National Trust http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-index.htm
