Coastal Defence Progress Pictures April 2011

Beach Nourishment - Sand and shingle has been placed on the beach to increase its width. This will provide Borth Village with more protection from incoming waves, as waves will be breaking further offshore and they will therefore have a wider beach over which their energy is released.
