These steps lead to a lower set of steps to access the beach and this image shows the top of the 3.2m (10.6") Sea wall while in the distance is the 34m (110feet) inland Lighthouse .
Burnham on Sea lifeboat launch crew return to the boathouse after lauching an inshore lifeboat into Bridgwater Bay, a tracked unit is required to cross the mud at times of low tide such as in this image. The sea defence required to hold the extreme tidal range can just be seen left of image and the notes show the position of the two rivers that enter the bay at this point..
The image is in 16.9 so a large view would be appreciated.
HFF and a great but safe weekend from Somerset.
