Shoreline Protection Works September 2014
Week Beginning Monday, 8th September

Week One Week Two Week Three Week Four

Week Two

A permeable layer of large shingle was laid along the new earth bank.  A test "toe" trench was dug and some Armorloc blocks temporarily laid. As a result of the trial it was decided to improve stability by digging a deeper toe trench and to add a layer of small diameter shingle before adding the membrane and Armorloc blocks. Engineers from ECSP visited the site to inspect progress.

Note: Spring tides restricted activity to only half day most days.
