Not illustrated. 1868 edition. Excerpt: ... 2. Hence the first portions of the marshes to appear above low-water mark, were the highest portions of these hills which emerged from the water in the shape of sand or mud-banks, lying across the mouth of the bay, in a direction parallel to the direction of the stream-line, between Fairlight and Folkestone, like the sand and mudbanks which may be seen at low water all along the coast between Dungeness and Dymchurch at the present day. 3. As the deposition of the silt continued, these sand and mud-banks increased, both in height and length. That to the north of Romney gradually extended until it reached the high ground of Kent, and completely closed the northern portion of the bay at low water. That to the south of Romney increased in like manner, but has never been able, completely, to close the southern portion of the bay. There has always been at least one outlet between Romney and Fairlight, by which the water in the Bay of Apuldore and its inland branches, has found its way to the sea at low water. 4. As soon as the opening between the ancient island at Romney and the mainland of Kent was completely closed at low water by the growth of the marsh, the rising tide could only overflow the seaward edge of the marsh after the water had risen above the level of the lowest portion of the edge, and at the ebb the water could not flow directly seaward after the tide had sunk below that level. In fact, the water in the northern portion of the bay of Apuldore was caught in a trap; it could not get to the sea over the elevated edge of the marsh, and was therefore obliged to change its course altogether, and flow backwards over the lowest portions of the marsh, until it fell into the stream from Apuldore, -with which it found its way to the sea...
