"Over the course of a year, Jules Perry walked along the edge of the East Anglian bulge, completing 400 miles on foot and a further 100 miles in a variety of boats. This is a coast that is about to be lost: not yet, perhaps, but soon. A thousand year ago a king commanded the waves to retreat to show human futillity in the face of nature. Others built sea walls and estuary defences. Small stretches of cliffs provided natural protections, as did shingle heaped into banks. Sea walls were raised, yet still churches, houses and whole settlements fell into the sea. This process continues inexorably. In 50 to 100 years it is possible that no landscapes by the sea will survive quite as they are today."--Full Circle Editions website.
