A Second world War Pill box on the beach near Aldbrough on Yorkshires East Coast, UK. It was originally constructed on the cliff tops but has collapsed into the sea as the coastline rapidly erodes back. The coast is composed of soft boulder clays, very vulnerable to coastal erosion. This section of coast has been eroding since Roman times, with many villages having disappeared into the sea, and is the fastest eroding coast in Europe. Climate change is speeding up the erosion, with sea level rise, increased stormy weather and increased heavy rainfall events, all playing their part.
