ST5486 : Sea defences at New Passage

Sea defences at New Passage
Sea defences at New Passage
The houses at New Passage appear to be well protected from the threat of an angry river Severn. Rock armour is the lowest defence - boulders placed by the shoreline which will allow water to percolate through whilst, hopefully, preventing erosion of beach material. Above the path is a concrete revetment topped by a re-curved sea wall.
