A drowned forest, Holme dunes NNR beach
A drowned forest, Holme dunes NNR beach
This photo, near Gore Point, shows a couple of things.

Firstly, there is the drowned forest. These are black peat-beds on the beach at low tide. These are the fragile remains of an ancient drowned forest. This rare habitat is home to the boring piddock, which tunnels into the peat with a rasping shell. This information was taken off the Norfolk Wildlife Trust interpretive board in their first car park - TF7044 : First car park and board.

Secondly, there are seen to be timbers in the sand. This area is being investigated by the Nautical Archaeology Society East Anglia Group - LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link .
