Saltmarsh On The River Crouch
Saltmarsh On The River Crouch
A case of "Coastal Squeeze", before the reclamation of farmland from the sea the saltmarsh could have stretched for many hundreds of metres inland from the foreshore. Here it is "squeezed" between the river and the sea wall, although things are not too bad, there is a strip of marsh about 100m wide holding back against the erosion.
