  • Storm uncovers lost Welsh land

    A recent storm coinciding with low tides has temporally uncovered the Welsh land of Cantre'r Gwaelod or the 'Sunken Hundred'. There are a number of similar places around the British coast. One wonders how much more we will loose as the seas rise again. Large parts of Lincolnshire and Essex must be at risk and as for the Netherlands! Make one grateful to be living above the 600 foot contour line.

      Depends how you define true. Like a pearl a good many at their centre contain a tintygritty piece of fact around which wondrous lies accumulated over time. I doubt very much that the lost land here once extended anywhere near as far as the myths suggest - no Doggerland in the Irish Sea
