Description

Blakeney Point is a spit that extends along the Norfolk coastline. The shape of the spit is constantly changing, shaped by erosion and deposition. Sand and shingle is moved along the spit carried by the action of the waves, in a process known as longshore drift. On land, the wind blows sand into dunes along the ridge of the split.

Classroom Ideas
