Encroachment of the Sea. On Tuesday last it was stated at the Nat- ional Sea Defence Conference held at West- minster, that 115 square miles of land has been swallowed up by the sea on the York- shire Coast alone since the Roman Invasion. In a paper recently read at the Institute of Civil Engineers, it was pointed out that from the year 1867 to 1900 the total area of Great Britain diminished from 66,964,260 acres to 56,782,053 acres, a net loss of 182,207 acres. Many places where, according to Domesday 0 Book, villages at one time stood are now covered by the sea. The coast line from Prestatyn to the Orme's Head has not escaped. There are some living at the present day who can remember fields between Foryd and Pensarn on the sea side of the wall which is now washed by the sea, and in Abergele Churchyard, distant now less than a mile from the sea, there is a stone in the wall which encircles the cemetery, bearing the following inscription Dyma maen gorwedd Un a aued Dair milldir yn y Gogledd." (Here lyeth one who was born three miles to the North).
