Mappleton – coastal management scheme

Mappleton sea defences including a stone groin

Mappleton sea defences

In 1991 almost £2 million was spent on two rock groynes and a rock revetment to protect Mappleton and the B1242 coastal road. Blocks of granite were imported from Norway for the sea defences. The purpose of the two rock groynes was to trap beach material. As the result of the coastal management a substantial beach accumulated between the groynes halting erosion.

Free parking is available at the car park on the sea front. It is accessible to coaches. A public toilet is also available.
