    Erosion is attacking other monuments around the British coast. One of the coastal gun emplacements which defended the Humber estuary in WWII has been completely lost in recent years.

    Hmm, yust spotted this duck-shoving official statement FWLIW :rolleyes:;
    Hurst Castle – Collapse of Section of East Wing Wall | English Heritage
    Key paragraph as follows:
    English Heritage was days away from commencing works to underpin the east wing of the castle, whose foundations – similar to the castle’s west wing – were being eroded by the sea. However, there were no signs of any major structural problems until a storm on 23 February prompted a rapid descent from stability to the collapse of an approximately 38 metre section of the east wing wall.
    So, there you have it again writ plain - foundation erosion is not a major structural problem. Yeah, right !
