Title: Cley sea defences
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
A combination of natural and man-made defences provide flood protection for Cley. A natural shingle embankment to the north takes the brunt of the seas energy. Tides find their way down the River Glaven as far south as the Cley Sluice at New Road (A 149). Embankments protect agricultural land and freshwater marshes and a concrete wall protects most of the village. At the east end of Cley properties along the coast road are outside the line of protection of embankments and walls. Here protection is provided by the shingle ridge across the marshe.
