An exhibition depicting two centuries of coastal erosion and sea defences in the region is on show at Cromer Artspace on the town's Western Promenade.

The exhibition runs from July 11 to July 22 between 11am and 4pm.

It has been created by Andrew Watkinson, emeritus professor at the University of East Anglia and former director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, and artist Jayne Ivimey.

They have researched the impact of coastal erosion and protection measures on the local coastline.

Walking in the strides of Ms Ivimey’s great  great, great grandfather, James Stark, of the renowned Norwich School of Artists, they retraced areas that he had captured in the 1830s and observed changes.

Mr Stark's artwork documented the Sheringham to Lowestoft coastline before sea defences were created.

Mr Watkinson and Ms Ivemey re-visited all the locations of his paintings, watercolours and drawings.

This has allowed them to assess the changes at the sites Mr Stark had visited, sampling sands from the cliffs and redrawing the scenes he had depicted.
