2008 Felixstowe’s Fate
Felixstowe South Seafront Beach is being cleared of Rocks and Groynes 28 March 2008. This is ready for the expected arrival of the dredger and the beach recharge.
The beach view is one as it has not been seen since the building of Felixstowe Promenade and beach breakwaters going back a 100 years or so. Rocks that were placed to save the prom from collapsing into the sea are being removed with the old concrete from the groynes which is being broken up for recycling. A promenade crossing attendant is present for public safety as the heavy plant crosses the prom, transporting the material to the base.
