Coatham Dunes

This site extends from the Amoco pipeline to Majuba Road. It is the coastal strip in front of the golf course.  The dune plant community here is much the same as that at South Gare.  Although the dunes are regularly used by local children near the car park they get wilder the further away you walk. The grassy area on the edge of the golf course and the sand dunes has a rich flora adapted to growing in nutrient-poor free draining soil. The influence of the caravan site on the local flora can be seen in the few garden escapes which have spread into the dunes.
