Location 1: Rossall Beach

Coast Watchers location 1 at Rossall Beach Cleveleys

Location 1: Rossall Beach is at Rossall Promenade, Cleveleys. It’s the bit where you can park your car right against the edge of the beach, just before the dead end near to Rossall School (sat nav FY5 1LP).

At the flag pole and notice board on Rossall Promenade is a set of beach access steps. You’ll find easy to follow instructions and the recording point at the Location.

Rossall Beach is a natural sea defence

The shingle beach at Rossall is an important natural sea defence. The waves don’t generally reach the top of the beach, until it’s a very high tide or stormy weather. Then the beach material does its job in taking the energy out of the waves and protecting the promenade from overtopping, damage and erosion.

High tides and stormy weather can happen at any time of the year. By photographing the same location lots of times we’ll be able to see how much the beach drops or is built up over time.

The aim of your photos is to show how much beach material there is near to the wall.

  • Hold your phone landscape (wide way on) to get most area of beach into the shot.
  • Rest it lengthways on top of the sign. That way everyone’s photos are at almost the same height.
  • Take at least one photo with your phone resting on the sign.
  • Take a couple more photos – you can upload three online.
