These white cliffs are located on the Tombigbee River at Epes, AL. They are part of the Selma Chalk formations which were deposited at about the same time as England’s famous White Cliffs of Dover. The cliffs at Epes are stunning in their own way as illustrated by the pictures that are provided. Also included is a b&w photograph taken in the late 1960s that shows the previous railroad bridge at Epes.
NOTE: Access to these cliffs is very limited. Most of these pictures were taken from atop the Epes river bridge and from underneath it. A park with walking trails is needed to allow access to the views of these beautiful white cliffs. The construction of a park on these white cliffs would be the perfect project for students of Auburn’s Rural Studio. This park would be a big attraction for southwest Alabama.
