Building Folly State Felixstowe 2008

Building Folly State Felixstowe 2008

22 March 2008 Saw high winds at Felixstowe with a fairly high tide producing  spectacular seas once more flooding the gardens in Sea Road and causing those watching to question  yet again the wisdom of the council plans to build houses on the flood plain on the south seafront.

The sea defence works have not yet commenced with the plans to building 21 fish tail T shape groynes to retain the shingle of a recharged beach.

Even if the defence work is successful the sight and power of the seas  as seen today must surely produce doubt as to the wisdom of building of 158 houses on the land. To everyone observing the power and ferocity of the sea, the idea is completely mad.
