Coastsnap West Bay

Coastsnap cradles have been installed by the Plymouth Coastal Observatory at the two coastal defence sites, West Beach and East Beach.

What are they for?

These are in place to encourage members of the public to take a snapshop of the two sites and capture the current state of the shoreline, be it eroding or accreting, overall feeding into the monitoring of West Bay Coastal Defence. This will hopefully increase public participation in coastal monitoring, raise awareness and provide a free data source.
