Coast between Dunwich and Walberswick, Suffolk, England. During a storm in November 2006 the sea broke through the shingle bar into Dingle Marshes. Dingle Marshes formed the largest area of freshwater reedbed in Britain and was a breeding are for the bittern. Given the inevitablity of future breeches the Environment Agency have since decided not to do any more coastal defence work here. The alluvial fan feature identifies a point where sea water over-topped the shingle ridge and poured in to the marshes.
