Big Rocks in England

An engineer with our name is in charge of protecting 136 houses in Withernsea, East Yorkshire, according to a story on the BBC Website. Starting last November, a $6 million project will import 35,000 tons of Norwegian rocks to stop cliff erosion and loss of the houses.

The rocks came across the North Sea from Norway by boat. The project will also keep the town sewage system safe.

The only quote from our fellow is, The first week in January should see the rock being delivered from Norway, which will offer tremendous relief to residents." "
