Damage to the beach

Uploaded Image

Am still spitting, today several men in large diggers have driven along the beach and started to remove the WWII tank traps set in front of our bit of cliff. The village is in uproar as 'someone' from a mile to the north is using these lumps of concrete to protect the base of his/she /its bit of cliff from erosion.

l have blogged about the damage whilst the villagers are rallying the troops and chaining themselves to bulldozers.

That's appalling. Would you believe ours all have listed building status.

Crystal Jigsaw's Avatar Absolute disgraceful. People have no respect whatsoever for our heritage.

Cait's Avatar I bet they use health and safety as an excuse.

Camilla's Avatar I cannot believe they are able to do this Muddy, dreadful.

Pondside's Avatar I can't believe that this person isn't being charged with mischief, at the very least. Surely anything like this from the war years would be protected.

Boudicca23's Avatar I think perhaps you should check with the council - as mentioned above by @themill and pondside, many of these things are protected. Your local County Archaeology Officer should be able to help as well and I would strongly urge you to inform him/her anyway (or at least your local archaeological society). I very much expect they'll have something to say about it and may well take up the fight. Oh and try letting your local newspaper know as well.
