The view from Langmoor and Lister Gardens lies at the centre of a major engineering scheme completed in 2007 by West Dorset District Council with funding from DEFRA.
The slopes are ancient landslides and they have been stabilised by placing piles through the landslide surfaces and adding drains to take away the water. The pebble beach adds weight to the base of the slope and absorbs the full force of the waves during stormy weather. The sandy beach, an important attraction for the town, is held in place by a large stone groyne and rock armour extending from the north wall (the straight wall) of the Cobb.
The rock armour on the end of the Cobb was replaced and lengthened in order to create a greater 'pool' to allow the waves to spill into and loose their energy. The length of the wall was designed using the latest computer and physical modelling and quite by chance closely matched the original stone wall placed there more than 200 years ago!
