Breakwater report from Harbour Trust director Robin Hamilton:

"During September A.G. Thomson brought in 150 tonnes of rock armour to reshape the breakwater, mainly at the Cromwell side to strengthen and raise the level. Also many of the existing larger stones were repositioned on the front face to make better use of them. It is proposed to bring in further rock armour next year after seeing how the strengthened breakwater reacts to Dunbar's winter storms."

 

 

“Marine Scotland is kindly working with the Trust to provide further funding for the wall repairs that are necessary to keep Dunbar Harbour safe. Every year the North Sea impacts on our defences and there is a constant requirement to repair the serious damage done by the sea.”
