End of Dig
After the digging for the season was finished, there
was still plenty of work to do to reinstate the area and protect the
site from winter storms
The site was to be protected with a
geotextile membrane, so the first job was to fill sandbags to hold this
in place, and to protect the structures
Tarpaulin was used to cover the area
around the structures
Geotextile was placed over the structures,
not an easy task in the high winds
The debris netting around the edges
of the trench was placed over the sea-facing section, and held in place
A machine was then used to put sand back
over the entire area.
The site hut was dismantled,..
..and the turves placed over the
The whole site was then covered with a
heavy net to stop the wind from blowing the newly-laid turves away
The site was then left - but how our protection
will fare over the winter remains to be seen!
