Cain's Folly is eroding landwards, as evidenced by these photos of the gate , now defunct, and the coast path .. all looking westwards towards Lyme Regis.

Cain's Folly on Stonebarrow Hill, a massive rotational slide that goes from 140 metres right down to sea level. Thee Spittle at Lyme Regis can be seen across the bay (most of the intervening village of Charmouth is hidden in these views) and shows the slide of earlier in 2008.

To the east  the edge of Cain's Folly lose their large free-face, left, and despite further landward retreat, centre, give way to open country before rising again to the massif of Golden Cap.

The free face of Cain's Folly has grown enormously over the past thirty years; the WW2 pillbox, just visible in the centre shot, was accessible then, but now the scale of things are of a different order!
