Spring tides create colourful scenes in Burnham-On-Sea
spring tides and calm weather have created stunning scenes along
Burnham-On-Sea's coastline this weekend.
The 12.2m tides have been lapping at the foot of the dunes and
sea wall, creating colourful scenes at the Yacht Club and besides
the areas has seen calm weather and there has been no risk of
over-topping, although the Environment Agency shut the town's
flood gates at Burnham jetty and Maddock's Slade as a precaution.
Spring tides have also been hailed as the lowest for 200 years
in parts of the Bristol Channel, making some areas exposed that
would usually not be seen.
