Abstract:Erosion of the eastern coastline of the U.K. has been a continuous problems over the years and severe flooding has occurred in many places. To provide adequate flood protection to the area (Heacham beach) the Anglian Water Authority (now Anglican Water) A.W. decided to construct a 1600m long stepped concrete sea wall running south from a similar sea wall previously constructed at Hunstanton. In June 1985, a visit was arranged by M.A.F.F. to view the revetment and attended by representatives from M.A.F.F., A.W. and Hydraulics Research Ltd (H.R.L.). The purpose of this meeting was to inspect the revetment and discuss ways of monitoring its performance over the coming winter months. Also discussed was the possibility of recording wave conditions over each spring tide.
