What is The Exe estuary Box?

The Exe estuary box is a place to share thoughts, experiences, ideas and questions on the Exe estuary and coastline.  It contains five activities that you can take part in at home – individually, as a family or as a group. The Exe estuary box was delivered by post and bike to people around the estuary during covid lockdowns in 2020 and 2021.  We worked with health workers, local libraries and other local organisations to reach people, some of whom were isolating during the pandemic. Boxes were returned to Tidelines for recording and sharing and to create a permanent record of people’s ideas, reflections and experiences. You can take part in these same activities on an ongoing basis through Tidelines’ website. The display boards celebrate the rich diversity of responses and show a selection of the contributions that we received through the Exe estuary boxes and through the website.

The information we are gathering helps to inform the future direction of our work and research at Tidelines so that is represents the broader interests and concerns of the estuary community.

This is a small display and we have tried to include all submissions in one form or another. The venues are chosen to be East and West. We hope the exhibition will appear again but this is not planned yet.

So come on down and browse through what people have said, what they know, what they want to know and what they have made in response to living around the Exe estuary!
