These are a few photographs I took this morning at Holland-on-Sea near Clacton. New ‘fishtail’ rock groynes have been installed along the front aiming to protect the promenade and prevent further coastal erosion.
In addition sand has been pumped from a sandbank out to sea onto the beach building a strong defence for the sea wall. I estimate the beach is now a good metre or two higher than the last time I visited the area.
See Tendring District Council website for more information about the sea defences.
