Bossington Beach - Somerset
Bossington beach is compossed of a steeply shelving shingle bar that has extended across Porlock Bay, seperating the flood plain of the Horner Water from the sea. The Horner Water has no mouth, instead the water pools up in a lagoon and seeps through the beach to reach the sea. At low tide the river can be seen resurging through the shingle beach. A recent sea-breach of the shingle bar has meant that the agricultural land to the south has become innundated with salt water. A decison has been made to allow managed retreat, rather than repairing the breach.
