There has always been a need to defend the coastline. In mediaeval times castles were sited at strategic locations. The use of gunpowder led to the development of forts and, by the time of World War II, concrete bunkers. Now the threat is from climate change, with sea-level rise and extreme weather. The old defences are no longer of any use, and they may even disappear as the coastline is gradually eroded.



  1. Thats a long time no see Keith, but well worth it.
