STORM FORCE WINDS DAMAGE
POINT CLEAR BAY SEA WALL
Environment Agency Act Speedily!


This picture shows how effective the sea is in attacking man made defence. Once a protective block is undermined and then dislodged, it is simply thrown to one side by wave action, thus allowing the underlying material of the sea wall to be removed,


Taken from the top on the Sea Wall footpath looking down the wall


This taken from the beach to show the gouging action of the waves

This page will show visitors the after effects of very strong winds behind waves breaking on the Sea Wall in Point Clear Bay and the damage they can cause to the Sea Wall itself by their scouring effect. The above photographs were taken on the 27th December and sent to a contact at the Environment Agency on the 28th Bank Holiday Monday. The very next day the Environment Agency sent a small team to inspect the site.
I was e-mailed to thank me for the pictures, to say that a field team had visited the site and that repair work would be attended to ASAP, which in fact was on Monday 4th January, which was only four working days! When we think of the problems in other parts of the Country with major flooding of land and property and the work the Agency was actually doing to help so many people in distressed circumstances, then I think they deserve a well earned ‘Round of Applause’ for their very speedy response to our problem.

The pictures below show the emergency repair which was made, with their special cement that goes rock hard between tides. I am informed that there are longer term plans for a major refurbishment of the Sea Wall defences in the Bay at this point.


Properties owners can breathe once again. The land protected by the wall is on
the same level as the beach


Looking from the footpath once again. When originally built these blocks were bedded on a cement layer and pitch poured around each block to seal it from the sea. Later the Agency dealt with this as described in the caption of the next picture


From the beach the dislodged blocks in a pile on the beach. On the 4th September 1995 the wall adjacent to this patch was repaired by bedding in large slabs, rather like a block of chocolate. These today are as good as when laid 21 years ago

The notice below arrived on 21st January, but I thought it appropriate to add it under our Sea Wall Damage item, since it deals with repairs to the ‘Tidal Embankment’, a description with which I am not familiar, but it may something to do with the Sea Wall. The notice is from Essex County Council and not from the Environment Agency, but nevertheless there may be a connection.


This public notice from ESSEX COUNTY COUNCIL announces work to be done. I have no knowledge of what is planned, but whatever it is, it must be for our benefit!
