Throughout the summer, The Environment Agency of England and Wales collects detailed scientific data on the cleanliness of our bathing waters (mostly beaches). Weekly and annual compliance ratings are given:
- meets the higher standard
- meets the minimum standard
- fails to meet the minimum standard
Use this web site to search for a bathing water by name, county or postcode, or by browsing around the map. You can then see the detailed data the agency has collected about that site.
Key: most recent weekly classification:
higher standard, minimum standard, fail, closed monitoring suspended due to abnormal situation
