Coastal defences. Stepped sea wall at Hunstanton, Norfolk, UK. The Norfolk area of the English coastline is particularly prone to erosion by the sea, and some areas are eroding at a rate of nine metres a year. Coastal defences, such as this sea wall, are used to slow erosion in some places, while other places are allowed to erode. Groynes, another form of coastal defence, are seen in the background at upper right. Photographed in August 2008.
