Imperial Geographical Society Expedition to Sealand

A sign for Sealand, 0.15 miles along from the sign for the Welsh border.

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.
