Coastal Partnership East is an innovative approach to managing the coast between Holkham in North Norfolk and Landguard Point in Felixstowe.
The UK has some of the biggest tidal ranges in the world which can easily catch you out. Most coastal locations experience two high tides and two low tides each day, with the water depth changing by as much as 10 metres. Tide times and heights vary throughout the month – luckily, tides follow a predictable pattern so it’s easy to plan your coastal visit.
Rapidly rising water can trap you in isolated bays, coves or on sand bars, often with little or no warning and no easy escape route.
On our coast, we have soft eroding cliffs which regularly slip and can do so without warning.
