Today we are going to learn all about a town called Happisburgh (pronounced Haze Bru!). This town suffers from rapid erosion which means erosion happens really really fast.

  1. 1.What is erosion?

    Erosion is wind, water (sea), and glaciers-peices of ice and other natural things in the sea- wearing away the rock, soil and earth gradually, in a long period of time. Like Happisburgh, in 1889 there was a huge coastal cliff , but in time it had been eroded until ; in 2006; approximately 50m of the cliff had vanished!🌊😱😱😱😱🌊😱😱😱😱🌊😱😱😱😱🌊😱😱😱😱🌊

    2.What is the situation in Happisburgh?

    Happisburgh is currently suffering from erosion. Their small town is constantly getting smaller and smaller, so in time all their houses are falling of the cliff! Recently, the houses are being sold for just £1!!!!!!!!!!!! This is because nobody really wants to live there because their house could be demolished by erosion in a matter of weeks!!🌊🌊🌊🌊😱🌊🌊🌊🌊😱🌊🌊🌊🌊😱🌊🌊🌊🌊😱

    3.What do you think can be done to help the situation in Happisburgh?

    I think that all people should be transported to another town so that they can live safely there.Also there should be loads of safety barriers, such as a Sea wall, Groynes and Gabions.πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ˜…
