The sea wall, it is said, is like a band across a great chest stopping the sea’s expansion: when the sea breathes out, the concrete and stone restricts its breath and swell. Really, you can’t stop a flood, only exert pressure against the inevitable force. The walls can often make matters worse because although ‘protecting’ areas from flooding, they also prevent these areas close to the shore from functioning as they should – as flood planes. This can sometimes increase rather than decrease the risk and our vulnerability to flooding. But I actually like our sea wall because it’s built in steps and on the lower ones you can find colonies of seaweed which I think might otherwise be homeless.
