Abstract

agricultural land use. At these sites, such as North and South Fambridge, Bridgmarsh Island and parts of Northey Island, where the sediment thickness are greater, a complex system of anastomising (connecting) creeks are superimposing upon the rectilinear network (Figure 3.4). Natural marshes in the Severn Estuary are characterised by relatively very low creek densities and the formation of stepped series of cliffed margins forming terrace sequences of marshes of varying ages (Figure 3.1). Natural unmanaged-retreat sites within this region, some of which may date back to the 16 century (Allen 2000), possess this regionally-typical ‘tabular’, very low density creek network system morphology (Figure 3.5).
