HouseFox are transporting our readers back in time, we revisit the tumultuous events of September 1903 when Weston-super-Mare faced a formidable sea storm breach. This historical incident not only shaped the town's resilience but also provides valuable insights into the power of nature.
Many people who move to Weston or visitors that walk the promenade ask "Where's the sea gone?" or "What time does the sea come in?" as Weston boasts one of the fastest tidal systems in the world.

The coastal marvel of Weston-super-Mare, where the ebb and flow of the tidal system weave a fascinating tale of nature's forces. This postcard highlights the intricacies of Weston-super-Mare's tidal system and revisits the historical sea storm breach that left an indelible mark on this picturesque town in September 1903.
Understanding Weston-super-Mare's Tidal System:
Weston-super-Mare boasts a unique tidal system influenced by the Bristol Channel. The dramatic rise and fall of tides in this region create a dynamic ecosystem and shape the coastal landscape. In recounting the events of the Weston sea storm breach of September 1903, it becomes evident that the town of Weston-super-Mare faced formidable challenges. The damage caused by the storm not only tested the resilience of the community but also played a crucial role in shaping the town's response to future environmental risks. As we navigate through history, it serves as a reminder of the enduring connection between nature's forces and human perseverance. Today a beautiful promenade is built and sea defence walls protect the coastal town, even during the highest of tides and Winter storms.
The Weston-super-Mare postcard photo is taken from the Knightstone Island looking back towards the beach front. The storm damage is very clear and hard to imagine that this took place in September, 1903.

House fox estate agents were brilliant throughout the process of selling our house. They were the best value for money and provided excellent customer service. Neil was always on hand when needed and was very quick to sort any issues and respond. I have also been on viewings with Neil and he we thought he was very genuine and didn't pile on the pressure like some other agents. Would recommend without hesitation.
