About this book

Britain possesses one of the most remarkable and varied coastlines in the world, with its richness in geology and human history on display. Since the dawn of time the sea has been sculpting the rocks, sands and marshes, constantly changing the shape of the coastline and the inhabitants of Britain have adapted, defended, sometimes surrendered it or recaptured it in response to the forces of nature. The Living Coast brilliantly celebrates this dynamic interplay between sea, land and people in 376 images from the air - a seagull's - eye view round the 9,000 miles of British Coast, from Land's End to the wave-pounded isles and ancient rocks of the far north; the receding shores and sensationally beautiful estuaries of the east; and the familiar chalk cliffs, crumbling Jurassic coast and drowned river valleys of the South.
