Cliff descaling work
Following a fall of loose stones from the cliff on the back road near to the harbour at the end of July 2018, Clovelly Estate consulted its geotechnical experts.
No imminent danger was foreseen, but it was recommended that the vegetation was removed.
Following that operation, it was recommended that as a precaution, 6′ stainless steel rock anchors should be drilled into the rock face and clad in chain mail to stabilise the cliff 40′ up and 25′ along.
It took about 4 weeks and was completed in March 2019 at a cost of some £32,000.
