A Blot on the Landscape!


And not forgetting the smell of rotting sea weed on a hot summers day

Hi,
I have found your views and interest in Suffolk extremely interesting. I am a third year fine art student at the NUCA and am researching the changing face of industrial Britain. I am in the process of building my own website to exhibit my work which will include images of areas that are in the process of change (which at the moment is everywhere). I am concentrating on Sheffield (a city) with its roots in the cutlery business and Brantham, Suffolk (a town), which expanded because of the British Xylonite Company, which has recently been demolished, but that will eventually be replaced with newer businesses thus the area will once again change.
I am interested to find individuals who have lived in Suffolk and who are concerned with the changes : be it changes because of a decline in community, environment, industry, agriculture, demographics... anything that compares a personal view of the past and takes us up to our present day and what the positive and negative thoughts  are for the future.
It would be fantastic to hear your views.

Welcome to the forum Carol smile.gif

Would the changes you mention also include coastal erosion and the Flood Plains that 'might' occur due to climate change. There was a report on the River Blyth estuary just this month where sections of the River/Coast may have to be abandoned.

I wish you well in your studies, be sure to include your website address on this section when you are up and running. I trust that any future development of the old BXL site will be a little more appealing to the eye than it has been in the past.

One interesting facet is that whenever I have 'moved house' the current and future planning of the area has always been uppermost iin my mind........

The Sea Defences at Bawdsey are not only an eyesore but a danger to the public
