The picturesque and dynamic north Norfolk coast stretches for 43 miles, from the silt expanses of the Wash in the west through the coastal marshes, soft cliffs and hinterland of north Norfolk, to the dune system at Winterton in the east.

Now a free event at the Simon Aspinall Wildlife Education Centre, NWT Cley Marshes, is set to show how the natural processes and man's influence have, and continue to, shape this coastline.

The event on Friday September 11 from 6pm to 9pm will see local experts explain about processes that affect the north Norfolk coast, its wildlife, activities which shape it and the consequences of the December 2013 tidal surge

Among the presenters will be David North, of Norfolk Wildlife Trust, who will set the scene on the development of Cley past, present and future; Christine Hiskey, archivist from Holkham Estate will provide an insight into the development of the Pines woodlands; and Godfrey Sayers who will provide an insight into the natural processes along the coast.

Tea, coffee and cake will be provided. Spaces are limited: email or call the Norfolk Coast Partnership on aonb@norfolk.gov.uk or telephone 01328 850530 to book.
