There’s much more about Coast Watchers and how it’s evolved here.
It’s a new project to collect and share interesting information about the Wyre coastline, and how it changes. A partnership between Visit Fylde Coast and Wyre Council’s engineering team.
Coast Watchers is initially looking at the Wyre coastline, specifically at first at Cleveleys. The aim is to expand it around the Fylde Coast, and then maybe further afield.
Recording the Beach in Photos
We’re asking you to take photos of the beach and upload them to the Coast Watchers Photo Timeline. Together we’ll create a visual record of how our coast changes over time.
You can add beach photos that you’ve taken anywhere on the Fylde. We’re also asking you to take photos at special recording points. That way we can all see how it changes.
The longer term plan is to link your photos to the huge amount of data that’s collected by various monitoring stations. That way we can see in real terms what effect a storm has, or a spell of really calm weather.
How to take your photos:
Recording Unusual Things
We’d also like you to upload photos of anything you see that’s a bit unusual. If you use the beach a lot you might recognise that it’s recently washed away or the sand might have built up.
You might be out dog walking or fishing in freak weather, or just find something unusual. These things are all important parts of the life of our beach.
Coast Watchers is a project from Visit Fylde Coast. Submit and view your photos in this portal. Find everything else about Coast Watchers on the Visit Fylde Coast website.
