Ringwood Point - Dredger
Ringwood Point - Dredger
I don't quite know what's happening here. The land behind the existing sea wall appears to be at least in part being removed and a new sea wall built to the south. The sucker ship and the big dumper obviously have some role in this.
Some 3 months after this picture was taken the sea wall was breached close to this point TQ9794 : The Sea Returns, TQ9694 : Breaching the Sea Wall and a large area of farmland was returned to the sea. The ships were in fact exchanging soil for "uncontaminated" mud dredged up offshore.
