The popular Saltmarsh Series returns

Many think of the Saltmarsh Coast of North Norfolk as a place apart. But why is this coastline so special and so unique? And what are the challenges and opportunities faced by those who live, work and visit?

Following the success of the pilot series of lectures in 2017, we are delighted to launch a monthly series of lively lectures, talks and debates about this very special part of Norfolk.

The first series (July – December) begins with The Sea:

July 19, 2018 Forces of Nature

A look at the geology, geomorphology and oceanography of the area – how the tides, currents, erosion, accretion and human interventions have shaped and will continue to shape the Saltmarsh Coast.

Speakers: Richard Hardman CBE and Godfrey Sayers

August 16, 2018 Sea Work: Fishing

How offshore and inshore fishing has evolved – looking at stocks and landings of fish and shellfish, and the impact of technology, the market and the coming of windfarms.

Speakers: Sally Festing, Nicky King, Cyril Southerland

All events start at 7pm: tickets £5
