Coast and Beyond is a beautifully illustrated, in-depth companion to BBC TWO's BAFTA-winning series Coast. It tells the fascinating stories of our own magnificent coastline and, for the first time, goes further afield to explore those of our neighbours, too. Steve Evanson, the producer of the television series, is our guide to great coastal landmarks, such as Blackpool's Tower and Illuminations, St Michael's Mount in Cornwall and the enormous Great Laxey Water Wheel on the Isle of Man. He also investigates local stories and events, including Brighton's little-known silent-movie industry, the mysterious collapse of the Tay Bridge in 1879 and Spike Island - the 'Irish Alcatraz'. What's more, this book looks beyond the shores of the British Isles towards the coastlines of northwest Europe and northern France, which are inextricably tied to our own through trade, war, culture and geology. How can the crumbling white cliffs of Normandy help us to understand the erosion of our own chalk walls? What do Norwegian fiords and Scottish lochs have in common? And what impact did the Vikings have on the British coast? Coast and Beyond provides a wealth of information about the landscape, history and geography of our coastal regions, as well as maps and practical information for visitors, so that you, too, can discover the secrets of our coast... and beyond.
