In his book 'The Isle of Wight' James Redding Ware describes two landslips at Blackgang Chine, one in about 1799 and another in 1810-11. "An area of 100 acres was observed to be in motion, and continued so during two successive days, directing its course towards the sea in nearly a direct line. The changes which took place upon the surface were extremely curious, as there was scarcely a square yard but altered its appearance, both rocks and trees shifting their situations, and forming as confused a scene as if the ground had been convulsed by an earthquake."
