50 years of caring for the coast makes its mark

A large beach marking was created at Whiteford Burrows to commemorate 50 years of the Neptune Coastline Campaign, a project aimed to permanently protect more than 500 miles of the UK’s coastline.

See how we did it

Sand artist Marc Treanor assisted by a team of local volunteers spent six hours creating a giant map of the UK at Whiteford Burrows, Gower, adorning it with sandcastles and flags to signal each area of the coastline that has been saved through the Neptune coastline campaign.
