The mud and sand in the foreground stretch for miles along the Stour estuary, which is more of an inlet of the sea than a river outlet since the river itself is dammed at Cattawade TM0932 : White Bridge, downstream from Flatford TM0733 : Flatford - Lock and "Automatic Gate"' As a result, the seaward flow is small as a proportion of the water is extracted at Cattawade for domestic use as drinking water. Only here, though, is there a stilt village - a rare phenomenon in Britain where planning laws severely restrict such developments.
