Elant / Elland-on-Sea: Past and Future Elland


Elland was recorded as Elant in the Domesday Book. The town’s name is derived from the Old English meaning ‘land by the water, river or land partly or wholly surrounded by water’.

Some scientists project that if global warming increased so much that all the ice caps melt, the sea level would rise by 80m.

My route map of Elland takes us along the new shoreline of future Elland-on-Sea and the postcard above is a photo collage of how Elland Bridge might look like in the future.
