More Problems At Hemsby.


Recommended Posts

Speaking  with local fisherman,who have fished all there life at sea.They believe  drudgeing has added to the problem.I still can't get over the fact that only the Lifeboat  crew,volunteers  and local are the only ones fighting  hard to safe what's left  of the beach and dunes.

Dredging out at sea disrupts tidal flow. 

I believe.


Taking away material can vastly effect coastal security.

Google "Hallsands Village" in South Devon.

A fishing village destroyed by the sea and caused by the dredging of shingle for the construction of Devonport Naval Base.

Problems at Pakefield too, just south of Lowestoft. Caravan site evacuated. Road and cliff edge lost unexpectedly. And caravans left right on the edge. There must be parts of that site that won’t be able to be used again and need clearing. 

And it exposed an unexploded bomb.
