The Naze Tower as you approach from the south. The cafe and car park are notes in this archive shot .. it can be repeated in future times!



From the remnants of the concrete track, towards the last A-frame breakwater. The first erosion bay has seen much slippage over the past year, if not much retreat along the cliffs.


The approach to the natural section of the Naze; showing the old concrete track as it enters the danger zone. The brick information structure looks likely to go sometime before summer 2002!

The caravan used by the 'Save the Naze'  Society and manned over the weekends of the summer season. Leaflets and published materials of the group were available, as well as a good chat on the Naze!

The northern end of the Naze peninsula has been seeded with sand dredged from Harwich harbour. This nourishment fronts a lagoon and sea wall, seen in the centre photo, but is now being rapidly depleted.


Grasses have been eroded from the new deposits, leaving a fine matt of root fibres to blow in the wind.



At one stage the waves had cut a sharp half-metre cliff into the deposit, but now the whole beach has been sharply reduced, as can be seen here, facing south.

The eroding sands of the north Naze, with the coastline of Suffolk, and the cranes of Felixstowe, breaking a low horizon.
