Help National Park capture Pembrokeshire’s Changing Coasts

Members of the public are being asked to help capture the Pembrokeshire Coast’s changing landscape by taking photographs to help document the process of coastal change.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Changing Coasts project will ask people to take and share photographs taken at specific locations, starting with a pilot at Abereiddi.

National Park Authority Interpretation Officer Rebecca Evans said: “Winter storms have battered our coastline in recent years, dramatically changing some of the beaches.

“We are hoping that volunteer amateur photographers will help us to capture that change with images taken in different seasons, at different times of the day, at high and low tide.’’

The specific locations for taking the images will be marked with posts for people to rest their camera devices on and will include information on how to submit the photographs.

Andrew Tuddenham, the National Trust’s Manager for North Pembrokeshire, added: “One of the many beauties of the coast is that it naturally changes, and more so at Abereiddi since the sea wall was removed a few years ago.

“A new beach is being formed here and it’s fascinating to see this process unfolding over time. We’ve been monitoring the changes from this spot since 2012 and look forward to seeing this historic record grow through this project.”

The first location can be found on the way to the Blue Lagoon, facing back across the beach at Abereiddi.

At the end of the project, the images will be organised chronologically and used to produce a time-lapse film, which will be shared via social media.
