Sea Defence work Felixstowe Pipe Ready
Felixstowe sea defence beach recharge pipe appears ready  for the shingle etc. to be pumped ashore adjacent to the Martello Tower ‘P’ on the south seafront beach.
These pictures show the pipe which is joined at the shore end by a flexible link where the aggregate will be transported along the beach to raise the level.
When this is done   the rest of the
‘T ‘ shaped groynes   will be constructed and it is hoped that the beach material will be retained and not disappear with the tides as up to the present time.
This has stopped the idiotic council plans of building on the flood plain
