Re-grading the sea defences, Breaksea Point, Gileston.
Because of the action of the sea and extreme tidal range of the Bristol Channel and River Severn it is regularly necessary to restore the shoreline and sea defences to their most effective. The Countryside Council for Wales (CCW) administers the designated Heritage Coasts in Wales with approximately 42% of its coastline under the heritage coast scheme. Many of these coasts are part of larger National Parks or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is they who are responsible for such work and their responsibilies can, on average, reach 1 1/2 miles inland .
