From Wikipedia

Chine forming on soft cliffs at Compton, Isle of Wight
Shanklin Chine, circa 1910.

A chine ( /ˈn/) is a steep-sided coastal river valley where the river flows to the sea through, typically, soft eroding cliffs of sandstone or clays. The word is still in use in central Southern England—notably in East Devon, Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight—to describe such topographical features. However, 'bunny' is also used to describe a chine in Hampshire.
