Rock groynes & Folkestone Harbour
Rock groynes & Folkestone Harbour
The rock used in the construction of the groynes was transported by barge from a quarry in Norway. It was then moored 2km off the shoreline and unloaded into smaller 'trans-shipment' barges, which transported and deposited the rock on the beach. Large excavators fitted with rock grapples then placed the rocks into designated shapes to form the structure. Approx 210,000 tons of rock were used to build 3 rock groynes and a rock headland.
