The coastline of England encompasses a huge diversity of landscapes, natural and man-made. People have been drawn to the coast since the earliest times and settlements by the sea in England range from small villages, to seaside resorts and urbanised and industrial towns. Many have made their living by the sea, but the coast is also a place of entertainment, escape and outdoor pursuits. Some 2,700 miles long, the geography of the English coast varies from flat, sandy shorelines, to cliffs and bays, all punctuated by river estuaries, often with major towns.
In England’s Coast, photographer Steve Edmunds has captured a huge variety of scenes from the coastline of England, From the South West peninsula, along the South Coast and up the East Coast past East Anglia to Northumberland, and along the coast of North West England in the Irish Sea.
