Cwm Ivy: Where the sea comes in 

Cwm Ivy marsh was claimed from the sea to be used as farmland in the 17th Century and was protected by a sea defence which over the years increased in size and strength. Now after nearly 400 years as farmland the landscape is changing and the sea is moving back in.
