Coast Protection at Skara Brae
Coast Protection at Skara Brae
Much of the Skara Brae village has been lost to the sea since it was abandoned more than 4000 years ago. The 20th century protection works appear to consist of masonry faced steel sheet piling with a concrete apron, but how long will they last?
