The Undercliff originally ran from St Lawrence to Blackgang, the part form Niton to Blackgang was closed following a cliff fall in 1928, the part from St Lawrence to Niton has remained open but is liable to subsidence.
The fall in 1928 was not unexpected, there had been signs of it since February of that year. the estimate of the fall varied between 100,000 and 200,000 tons of rock.
