The dunes at Sizewell have great importance as a protective barrier, but they do have pressures, from visitors, their dogs and a few local fishermen! The beach had received a dusting of snow the day before, but only a few areas remained.

Power station photographs - the 'A' station is the grey concrete slab, a MAGNOX plant currently being decommissioned, and the blue building with the white dome is Sizewell 'B' a more recent PWR reactor. Soon, within three or four decades, the PWR plant will also be decommissioned, so the site will have activity on it for many years to come. Following decommissioning, of course, the cores will need to be kept safe for hundreds of years, to allow levels of radioactivity to fall - if a hundred yards of gravel and the North Sea  - in a time of global warming and sea level rise - are co-operative! Not.
