SZ0378 : Gabion wall of cliff reinforcement, Durlston Bay

near to Swanage, Dorset, Great Britain

Gabion wall of cliff reinforcement, Durlston Bay
Gabion wall of cliff reinforcement, Durlston Bay
These gabions form the northern wall of the cliff stabilisation scheme below the precarious flats on Belle Vue Road, in the middle of Durlston Bay. The stone is Portland Stone, which is a much lighter colour than the underlying cliffs. Plants have started to establish themselves on the edges of the structure, but there is little soil available in the gaps and the greening of this slope will take a long time.
