Help us recover from the worst storm in 60 years.
In December last year the north Norfolk coast was assaulted by a lethal combination of onshore winds, high spring tides and a storm surge caused by a North Sea depression.
Your support as part of our emergency storm surge appeal has raised a fantastic £123,000 of the £300,000 needed to make urgent repairs to the damaged areas as well as allowing us to make preparations for the coming winter.
Our Titchwell reserve on the north Norfolk coast was badly affected and had it not been for improvements to our sea defences a few years ago with the Coastal Change project, Titchwell Marsh as we know it would not exist today.
The iconic beach board walk was destroyed and sand dunes reaching 30 feet in height were flattened by the surge. Most concerning, the sea defence walls on the eastern side of the reserve couldn’t hold back the full force of the surge and some sea water seeped through into the valuable habitat. This left the structures damaged and vulnerable to future surges.
