This has been in Peer Review a couple of times before. The first time, the Captcha prevented me from editing it, so I had to withdraw it and make a new version.

The second time, I withdrew it for personal reasons which were nothing to do with h2g2 (the tragic death of a friend of a friend along the cliff path). That's far enough in the past now that I'm happy for this to go into Peer Review again.

Great to see this back in Peer Review, I had wondered what had happened to this. I did have one question – my local cliffs are predominantly chalk, clay, sandstone or limestone, and they have quite different characteristics, especially in damp weather. So chalk gets slippery, clay sticks to your boots, sandstone drains well but can crumble and limestone, well, it stays limestone. (Don't go near cliff edges during or following rain) What type of cliff is this?

I think it is quartzite but I'll have to look it up.

According to a geology site,

"Most of the rock is greywacke slate, but the best exposed rocks are large sections of quartzite."

I don't know much about geology so I don't intend to write about it.

This sounds like a good walk smiley - smiley and you've included plenty of useful information about car parks and places to eat.

But parts of it sound a bit downbeat - the high fences, the ruined house, the seaside resort past its prime. smiley - sadface I suppose if I was writing this, I'd be more lyrical!

I don't really do lyricism well. The furthest I can stray from a straight factual description is mild cynicism.
