Happisburgh, Norfolk, 27/1/2001
Visit with Michael and Vanessa Woolnough to obtain colour slides of the eroded embayment. Just near high tide at 12.45 so the foreshore deposit not visible.

Lynford, Norfolk, 26/1/2001
Examined the very large mounds of reject flints and in one hour failed to find a single flake. Met Mr Huckstead of Ayton Aggregates who is very co-operative.

Happisburgh, Norfolk, 9/5/2001
Day organised by Jim Rose and Tony Stuart, accompanied by Simon Parfitt, Brian Moorlock (BGS), Richard Preece (Univ. Cambs), John Stuart (UCL), Martin Warren, Peter Robins.
A JCB is employed and, at low tide (c. 15.30) the machine scraped a wide trench from the foreshore back towards the cliff. The archaeological deposit thinned out but c. half way back it confirmed that it underlay the Happisburgh Till. Astonishingly, the deposit (c. 80m thick) ws truncated and appeared that it may be a large raft moved by glacial action. The grey clay beneath it was absolutely smooth and level both under and beside its truncated edge, so there is no question of any fluviatile erosion having produced the truncation.
