2002 – Anticipating Coastal Landslips

Culbone Woods, Exmoor Coast


Geotechnical mapping of 200 hectares provided base map for future instability predictions. Simple movement monitors installed at 50 locations allowed the National Park staff to relocate public footpaths in advance of slope failure. Hedge plashing, coppicing and other traditional techniques provided stability and materials for check fencing for rolling boulders.
