Imperial Geographical Society Expedition to Sealand
The Imperial Geographical Society (IGS) yesterday conducted an expedition to Sealand.
Not the Principality of Sealand, a tiny sovereign state off the British coast, but rather a Welsh town of the same name.
The expedition, consisting solely of Emperor Jonathan I and Princess Consort Hannah, walked two and a half miles from the latter’s university accommodation in Chester over the English-Welsh border to Sealand, stopping for lunch near the border sign.
Sealand is not only of interest due to it sharing a name with the famous Principality; the land used to be marshland under shallow seawater until a land reclamation project in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
