1986 RECLAMATION SCHEMES

 NORTH BEACH RECLAIMATION SCHEME IN    
 GUERNSEY                              
                                       
   The increase in visting and local   
 yachting has necessitated the         
 reclaimation of a large area of       
 coastal land.  When the original

In 2011 the BBC published the survey online and for six months invited updates to the photographs and text to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
