The England Coast Path

By Giles Merritt

Lead Adviser England Coast Path Delivery (Norfolk and Suffolk Team)

Natural England

Giles has been working on the England Coast path for a number of years, most recently in Essex. He will be talking about the genesis of the idea for an England Coast Path, the routes which are currently in place and the challenges that Natural England have faced in implementing the government’s plans. He will also talk about the progress of the path in Suffolk and in particular the options for a coast path between Bawdsey and Felixstowe Ferry.


Saltmarsh Restoration Report – Sep 17

The information in this report has been gathered from many sources and provides a record for the River Deben Association (RDA) and other interested parties. It considers the current state of the saltmarshes on the River Deben and gives some possible reasons for their deterioration together with other observations. Proposals are made for a possible trial to help restore badly eroded areas.
