Moving giant rocks:  Borth sea defences
Moving giant rocks: Borth sea defences
As the tide goes out the rocks dropped from 'Charlie Rock' earlier in the day SN6089 : A bigger splash: Borth sea defences are noisily moved into place to form a causeway out into the sea. The din is deafening and the houses shudder with the vibrations. And it goes on all day - and will go on all summer. But doing it this way, for all the discomfort of noise and vibtation, is saving hundreds of loading and unloading journeys by lorry and on balance is less inconvenient for everyone.
