The colour history shows how a beach enjoyed by generations of families began to disappear suddenly after the completion of the Outer Harbour. Also includes is a timeline and a brief engineering explanation.
The two–year study of why the beach is disappearing has been headed up by Dr. Phil Barber, established specialist in hydronomics, sediment transport and shoreline management. His conclusions are contained in this Executive Summary.
Having spent £10 million and strategically placed 90,000 tonnes of Norwegian granite on the beach the erosion has stopped and families have been enjoying the use of the new beach throughout the summer holidays.
