This was the first under-sea coal mine in Britain, but its iconic pit head building at Whitehaven had fallen into disrepair. Using a combination of stone support techniques, reinforced concrete and gabion baskets we were able to protect the structure from further erosion by the sea and preserve this historical monument for future generations.
The river Caldew had eroded bridge abutments at the Sheepmount in Carlisle. R H Irving Construction Ltd were tasked with repairing the structures, commencing with installation of gabion baskets and piling.
The area was then landscaped with anchored reeds to provide eco-friendly protection against further erosion.
