Abstract:This short report summarises a visit to Holland and Belgium to examine methods of sea defence not commonly used in the United Kingdom. What was immediately obvious was the predominance of asphaltic type constructions which appear to have considerable promise as an alternative to the more traditional forms of coast protection used in this country. Some of these schemes have been in place for several decades and have therefore withstood the test of time.
