The BBC  reports a large crack has appeared along a cliff top at Birling Gap:

The popular coastal attraction has suffered seven years’ worth of erosion in two months.”

Our Isle has been shrinking significantly this winter. Cliff falls like this one at Hastings not uncommon.

The old coastguard cottages are being taken one-by-one. Some local people think defences should be built… But for now Nature is being left to take its toll.

Is anything being done to stop coastal erosion?

Should anything be done?

Surely,  where something can be done –  it should be done?

Find out more about our proposal to rebuild vulnerable parts of the British coastline – using nature’s own defences.
