The beach scene towards the north, and Southwold on the horizon, looks much the same as in 2000. Perhaps there is less beach activity, but the fish-shop is open in readiness for customers on a fine 'Sunday morning.

The cliff areas immediately to the south of the fishing huts has been cordoned off by a new fence. Damage to the cliffs by casual climbing has been evident for many years, but this menace has become disfiguring of late, and it is important that the cliffs vegetate whenever the sea is not actively scouring the base of the cliffs.

The fence is about 80m long, ending precisely where out beach measurements start. This is a good marker for our survey and also a sound pointer not to clamber on the cliffs!

A detailed shot of the prime survey line, directly below the rabbit hole, complete with recent scouring by people climbing the cliffs. The slight dip above the large hole marks the line of the footpath from the High Street ... getting shorter every year!
