Crosscanoby Salt Pans - threats from coastal erosion 2019

These three photographs show why the Crosscanonby salt pans require urgent surveying and re-evaluation, and why Ecosal-UK is seeking grant aid to establish a local community project to survey the beach and establish what impact the tides, weather and storms have over a twelve month period.
The work may also suggest what excavation works are required to understand exactly how the salt pans were operated.

Brine well between high and low tide under constant erosion from shifting sands and gravel.

Failed gabions to the south of the Crosscanonby salt pans putting the coast road in danger of erosion.

Three tier gabions currently protecting the salt pans from tidal storms.
A caravan site once stood on the seaward side of these gabions!
