Coast line The county of Hampshire is bounded on the south by the sea. This boundary does not change much with changes of local or national politics! but it is subject to change by nature. Rivers, the sea, and winds change the shape of the land; sometimes slowly, sometimes suddenly and dramatically.

The coast line is shaded with horizontal lines which are continued into harbours. The sea area is patterned with an engraved moire or watered silk effect. Some coast landforms are labelled, eg:-
Black Cliffe
Hengestbury heade
Some harbours are labelled, eg:-
Hamble haven.
