  • How Headlands and bays are formed
    • 1. Some types of rock are more resistant to erosion than others
    • 2. Headlands and bays form where there are alternative bands of resistant and less resistant rock along a coast
    • 3. The less resistant rock (clay) is eroded quickly and this forms a bay. Bays have a gentle slope
    • 4. The resistant rock (chalk) is eroded slower which forms a headland. Headlands have steep sides
