Repair works at Pett Level, Winchelsea

In Pett Level, East Sussex, EKEP engineers undertook extensive repairs to an existing breastwork structure which protects several houses in the western-most cell on this frontage.

The existing breastwork piles were repaired where necessary and new greenheart timber planks were bolted to them in a herringbone style pattern allowing shingle to be retained behind the structure whilst preventing damage due to wave action.
