The popular perception of saltmarsh in the UK has undergone several evolutions since medieval times, often undervalued and never universally appreciated. It is perfectly consistent with a body of land that changes its identity twice daily as the tide floods and ebbs that, according to the popular imagination, it should harbour an equally shifting and untrustworthy community.
The industrial revolution changed perceptions of the natural environment to one of leisure and offered redemption to societies living on the edge.
In recent decades huge efforts have been made to restore and manage saltmarshes to maximise the benefits they provide.
We will describe these reoccurring themes portrayed in popular literature and the changing place that saltmarsh occupies in the popular psyche.
