Soil of the Coastal Zone

The soil of the coastal zone is deep and rich.

The land is flat and the soil is easy to plough. Crops grow well. People have made fields and farmed here for centuries.

  • The Coastal Zone

    The brown, green and yellow fields give a colourful 'patchwork quilt' look to the landscape.


  • Clifftop fields

    The fields go right up to the cliff edges and sometimes fall into the sea.
