Visit one of the
Sandbanks of the Wash on our magnificent Wash Monster where you
can walk down the bow ramp and explore this unique environment.
It is partly due
to the existence of the sandbanks that both the North Norfolk &
Lincolnshire coastal regions of The Wash are designated Conservation
Areas. Sandbanks provide important nursery grounds for young fish
species, including plaice, cod and sole.
Wash is a long stretch of sand And low cliffs , with exposed saltings
and tidal inlets. It was here in 1216 that King John's treasure
train got trapped by the tide in quicksand, and disappeared below
the seas of the Wash. It has never been recovered!
