Site name: Jupes Hill Landslip

Grid reference: TM 069 318

Brief description of site:

Landslip in the London Clay slopes on the south side of the Stour valley near Dedham. It is reported to have occurred in 1928 on a slope of between 9° and 11½° between the 100 and 65 foot contours. An area of about 260 feet across the slope and 260 feet down was involved in the movement which left a rear scarp of about 8 feet in height. The toe of the slope has now been ploughed away.

The Essex Way passes across the top of the landslip. Historical site only as little evidence of the landslip can now be seen. There is evidence of larger, older landslips along this side of the valley.
