Renovation of Historic Ashlar Stone Sea Wall

Historic stone harbour, originally constructed in the late 1700’s to load munitions from

the Royal Naval Armaments Depot, The Camber is a Grade II listed structure and was

found in a very delicate state prior to commencement of the works.

Works included

  • Survey for potential munitions
  • Recovery of fallen stone blocks from sea bed
  • Installation of steel sheet piles using ‘Silent Piling’ techniques
  • Reinforced concrete foundation slabs and retaining walls as foundations for stonework
  • Reconstruction of collapsed stone sea walls in Ashlar Stonework reusing recovered stone blocks
  • Extensive timber structures were found behind the stone walls indicating earlier structures and evidence of earlier restoration
