p.s. It turns out that that wire mesh baskets were not to be used after all the hard work in building them. It was planned to fill them with rocks and place as a defence against erosion. They would have become a refuge for plant and animal life. It was thought that there was nothing significant to protect at the spot they were going to be placed. I would have thought it would have been good to have set them up as a test of a possible sea defence to protect some of the coastline.
