Withernsea DME resources

The resources below have been developed to support teacher and students using the Internet Geography Coastal Management DME for AQA GCSE Geography paper 3.

An application has been made to secure funding to extend the coastal defences at Withernsea on the Holderness Coast.  The resources below support students investigating the Withernsea Coastal Defences decision-making exercise.

The map below provides an overview of the proposed location of the coastal defences along with information on the existing coastal defences and the impact of coastal erosion in this area.

The image above shows the coastal defences to the south of Withernsea. These include a sea wall, wooden groyne and rock armour.
