A quiet afternoon on the beach: Borth sea defences
A quiet afternoon on the beach: Borth sea defences
In a constant - and noisy - round of activity a relay of tippers are emptying sharp shale into a trench dug by the excavators which removed a groyne earlier in the day. As soon as one tipper dumps its load the bulldozer on the left pushes it into place before the next tipper arrives. The purpose is to stabilise the sand which will be pushed back on top of the shale (according to a chatty workman), followed by the original pebbles. This all has to be done while the tide is out.
