A bigger splash: Borth sea defences
Huge rocks from Norway are unloaded from the flat barge 'Charlie Rock' to create a causeway from which construction vehicles can then create an offshore reef as part of the sea defence scheme. The unloading is dependent on tide and weather and is noisy - the whole house shakes with the vibrations. It is not scheduled to be finished until November and, according to workmen on the site, is already behind.
