Shoreham Coastal Erosion
« on: February 18, 2020, 04:58:24 pm »
Not history as such but like many in our area I fondly thought the recent flood defences would protect us for decades. Not necessarily so - this from the Shoreham Society:-
Latest thinking on potential threats to our local coastline will be discussed at a talk hosted by the Shoreham Society this Friday (February 21st). The event has been arranged to explore apparently conflicting predictions following a widely reported warning that Shoreham is among the highest-risk UK areas for coastal erosion.
Dr Uwe Dornbusch, a senior specialist at the Environment Agency, will describe coastal issues affecting Sussex and will focus on factors particularly affecting Shoreham.  The talk is at 7.30pm at St Peterís Church Hall in West Street, Shoreham. Members £2, others £3. Tea, coffee and bar available.

Project fear ?....I have not noticed any visible changes over the past 50 years apart from the extra shingle piles on the groynes due to longshore drift and those huge piles of rocks should slow that down a lot. We should however beware of the rising sea levels.
