|MWNN goes to survey fallen birch trees|
The evidence of December storms was all around, with large numbers of fallen trees.
The Forestry Commission is still working hard to clear the timber and make safe those trees which have yet to be removed from the support of still-standing conifers.
We found the walk easy, apart from a steep climb back up to the car park, which brought on a bout of wheezing. MWNN loaned me his stick.
|Present coastline marked in red|
Dunwich Forest was once part of the Dunwich/Walberswick heaths and forest, before coastal erosion took much of it into the North Sea. After lunch in The Ship Inn, we visited Dunwich Museum. There we saw a map showing the coastline c400AD.
