Brook Chine Information
It is a small coastal gully, one of a number of such chines on the island created by stream erosion of soft Cretaceous rocks. It runs from the A3055 Military Road about 300m due West to the beach at Brook Bay just south of Hanover Point. The sides of the gully are fairly shallow and allow the growth of hardy bushes, scrub and rough grasses.
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path crosses the chine via the road bridge on the A3055 bridge.
