Diagram of a spit. Longshore drift moves material along the coast. The material is dropped, forming a spit. As more material is dropped the spit grows. Eventually the spit may turn parallel to the coast (a hook). The protected area behind this hook could become mud flats or salt marshes as more material is deposited.

Suede biographer David Barnett was our press officer in 2004. He now fronts The New Royal Family which is a bit like watching Adam Ant if he sang funny songs about biscuits, tortoises and wanting to be gay. I saw them on Saturday, I hope they play again soon.
