Does the caption really say "Chimney"? This is generally called Blackgang Chine, and is on the south coast of the Isle of Wight - a chine being a gully or gorge that runs into the sea. This one which has been subject to substantial and dramatic landslip into the sea for many years. Location approx : SZ 48505 76856. There are lots of chines on the south and south west coasts of the island. More information on this and other chines here:

We could well have mistranscribed the information on the lantern slide, so we have updated the HEIR database caption and the location on the map. Thanks for sharing some local knowledge with us.
