TQ9694 : Breaching the Sea Wall

3 km from Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, Great Britain

Breaching the Sea Wall
Breaching the Sea Wall
Mechanical diggers breach the sea wall on Wallasea Island to allow 250 acres of low-lying farmland to be flooded. Global warming and increasing high tides are creating problems along the East coast. This Wetlands scheme by DEFRA abandons flood defence ideas and allows the sea to reclaim the land that was drained centuries ago.
