Floodgate and plaque, Chesil Sea Defence Scheme, Chiswell, Portland
The Sea Defences and Promenade were constructed between 1958 and 1965. The plaque to the left commemorates the opening but the date and much of the inscription are eroded by wind, rain and salt spray. Portland Stone was a poor choice!
