Weymouth is a town in Dorset, England, situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast.
Weymouth is very low lying (this is one of the factors which helps to protect it from frost and snow) and the eastern areas of the town experienced several sea floods during extreme low pressure storms, until in the 1980s and 1990s a high sea wall was constructed.
Beach nourishment and groynes ensure that the sandbeach, important both for tourism and as a natural defense against the sea, is wide and has a shallow incline.
