Widdick Chine Information (Geography)
|Location||Isle of Wight|
WIDDICK CHINE Latitude and Longitude:
It is a steep coastal gully, which is overgrown with vegetation. The water that used to flow down the slope has been redirected through a pipe which takes it to beach level to reduce its effect on erosion to the cliff. A set of steps have been constructed down the chine to provide access from Totland to the beach of Totland Bay.
The Chine pipe drains water from the northern slopes of Tennyson Down.
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path passes up the steps of the chine. At the bottom of the chine is the old Totland lifeboat house.
