Happisburgh; A village where the sea will have the final word
- Credit: Ian Burt
In the first of an occasional series of Picture Essays, photographer Ian Burt captures one of the most famous examples of Norfolk's restless coat: Happisburgh.
Anyone who has visited this lovely village and its beach over the course of even a few years will know of the often astonishing pace of erosion.
The disappearing coastline has also revealed some remarkable archaeological finds in its wake, most notably a set of 800,000-year-old footprints and the famous Happisburgh handaxe.
