1953 East Coast Floods resource

This got slightly delayed by other factors, but is now available ahead of next week's anniversary and commemorations which will take place along the coasts which were affected. I know there is a service and exhibition in both Snettisham and Hunstanton and aim to visit them this weekend, and then locations further round to the south of Norfolk and the Broads. The Environment Agency - one of the GA's strategic partners -  published a useful image of the flood defences as they were back in 1953 on a Pinterest board and it is shown below. Download the resource below: 1953 Flooding - 70th Anniversary from GeoBlogs More to come on this over the next few days. Look back at the posts from Southwold at the start of January as well for more related content to the floods, or search this blog using the search box top left. There is also an associated Pinterest board. I shall be out and about along the coast this coming weekend in a number of locations and will share some pictures i

Peak District Geology Walk

Happy New Year! The Peak District is one of my favourite places in the world, and one in which I've spent perhaps more time than most other places. Free Geowalk around the Peak District developed by Martin Whitely. A great offering for the New Year. @geoggeol @AGSB_Geology @seis_matters @ESTA_UK @GeolSoc @WGCG_UK @timeforgeog — peteloader (@peteloader1) January 1, 2023 There are 14 sections to the walk which can be downloaded as PDFs or GPX files.
