THE SEA: The sea can be dangerous and last weekend a survey took place of our local historic shipwrecks found on the foreshore organised by MOLA CITiZAN (or Museum of London Archaeology - Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network). This is part of a three-year national project and volunteers learnt how to measure and record between tides quicker than Time Team.
