Citizen Science opportunity: Deben PhotoPosts – 09 September 2023

The PhotoPosts project is a collaborative monitoring and public engagement enterprise involving AONB Suffolk Coasts & Heaths, the Deben Estuary Partnership, Parish Councils, and coastal scientist Helene Burningham of UCL. With funding from Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB, aligning with their Landscape Lens project, PhotoPosts have been installed around the Deben estuary and local coastline to support the monitoring of coastal change and inform decision-making and coastal management.

There are photoposts on the Deben riverbank recording the same view of the opposite riverbank for coastal erosion research.  More pictures are needed, say the Transition Woodbridge team.

It’s easy to take part.  All you do is take a landscape photo (portrait has too much sky!) through the frame on the post and send it to

There’s a post in Woodbridge by the Tide Mill and one near the Deben Vale Cafe along the towpath. 

All year round, all weathers, all tides – enjoy the view!
