  1. 1. Where in the world? A. London B. Brighton C. Manchester D. Boston
  2. 2. Where in the World? Brighton's coastline, was just 2.2 miles long before 1928, but now it stretches 5.4 miles from the Hove boundary to Saltdean.
  3. 3. Quick history… • Brighthelmston was a fishing village in the 16th century, with 400 fishermen and sixty boats. By the early 17th century Brighton was the largest town in Sussex with a population of nearly 4,000 people. • The decline in the fishing industry during the 18th century resulted in large numbers leaving the town in search of work. • In the middle of the 18th century some doctors began to claim that diseases could be cured by bathing in sea-water. George IV, spent a great deal of time in Brighton. • Rich people tended to imitate the behaviour of the royal family, and holidays by the sea became very fashionable. • Brighton soon became the most popular seaside resort in Britain, with over 2,000 people a week visiting the town.
  4. 4. Coasts • Coasts are important for many different reasons and for different groups of people. They provide: • places to live • places to work, e.g. fishing, ports and power stations • places to relax – tourism industries • wildlife habitats • beautiful scenery • educational value, e.g. geology and natural history
  5. 5. Locating key features…. Google Maps Can you find: • Brighton Pier • Marina Village • Saltdean • Label the map on your worksheet to highlight the key features
  6. 6. The action of the waves poses a threat to our coastline everyday…. read the A5 cartoon strip and stick it in your books. Highlight all the ways in which we can protect the coast.
  7. 7. Decision Making Exercise • In June you will be visiting Brighton for a days fieldwork to see what management strategies are in place to protect the coast. • This lesson you will be given detailed information on the different management strategies, you need to read the information carefully and then decide which ones you would implement, if you were making all the decisions. • Here is a little clip to start you thinking… • Management at the Coast
  8. 8. Label your map to highlight your chosen options……
  9. 9. What would you do? • In small groups discuss the ideas that you have put forward and see if you would like to add any other scheme to your plan. • When we visit Brighton you will be able to compare the data you collect with the maps that you have completed today.
