Back at home and later in the evening we heard a ‘woomph’ and guessed there had been a cliff slump. There have been a number of small slumps since The Storm in December last year. It is taking the cliffs some time to settle plus the wet winter has resulted in increased flow along the streams that run through the cliffs, making them wet and prone to slumping. A walk along the beach on Friday afternoon and we could see two fresh slumps on the cliffs in the Cromer direction but nothing to cause great concern.

North Norfolk News reported on its website that all post Storm works were ceasing in Cromer now, until after the Easter holidays, sea defence repairs will not resume until October and work to repair the promenades at Sheringham, Cromer, Overstrand and Mundesley is mainly finished. There have been two large loads, one of chippings, dropped on the promenade and the other shingle, deposited at the back of the rough area at the end of the promenade. Both are at the east end and I would not imagine they would leave the chippings on the promenade over Easter but as to what they are intended for; I have no idea.
