One of the most stunning Flint Circles you are ever likely to see. You can explore and find these Flint Stone and Chalk Circles at low tide on the sandy beach below Beeston Bump. The Flint Rock Rim extends around three quarters of the circumference, although not continuous. It looks like the chalk and nodules inside the flint stone circle were created in it. What can form the flint rim but not change the white Beeston Chalk inside it? There is also a Flint "Backbone" or column attached to the side of Vronny.

Things to look at are the white chalk inside it, the slightly yellowish protruding "nodules" and the Flint Backbone. This pdf about Paramoudras is a very detailed study on Paramoudras and associated features. Fig 8 shows protruding "nodules" in a Flint Circle.

The beach at Beeston Regis is one of the few places where you can find Paramoudras, or as they are referred to by Norfolk people, Pot Stones. You can dig these out of the sand at low tides. The are large flint stones with a "doughnut" shape to them.
Strangely these giant flint concretions are covered in white mineral or the flint has turned to white, whereas, the other solid flints found around them are very dark, almost like Obsidian.

Potstones (Sassnitzer Blumentopf or Flint Krukke as they are known in foreign places) look like the vertebrae of a Spinal Cord. Fulgurites are hollow glass like structures formed when an electric lightning bolt strikes sand. Maybe Paramoudras are one of natures versions of a backbone, with electricity having gone through the Pot Stones.

Another flint circle with another flint rock line (backbone or tail) attached to it...a flint powergon. If everything is scalable then this is formed by the same type of forces that have created the Maltese Powergons, the change in location meaning different base minerals and therefore result.

What ever forces created the Flint Circle are also very likely to have made the Flint Rock Line.
