We explore the rich multi-period remains exposed on the island’s all too rapidly eroding shoreline, and on the lower reaches of the Blackwater and Colne. Our community groups are recording a range of exposed features, including prehistoric trackways, red-hills from the salt-making industry and Saxon fish traps.
