Depends what the underlying geology is, not all cliffs erode at the same rate (or indeed, at all). The ones at Berwick and Boulby are comparatively hard rock (sandstone and limestone IIRC), the ones eroding rapidly further south around Holderness and bits of Norfolk are boulder clay which is basically mud with rocks in.

But on the other hand, I saw on that programme on the BBC the other week, called something like "Hidden Britain" that the English Channel at Dungeness in Kent is receding and the beach there is slowly getting bigger.

Possible extension on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway!

Mind you I think it's only shingle beach which is actually growing so it could take some work.
