Barton-on-Sea cliffs study

New Forest District Council is investing £300,000 central government funding in a ground survey at Barton-on-Sea.

This is a response to the many landslides including shallow mudslides around Hoskin’s Gap which is just west of the clifftop shops opposite the Indian war memorial.

Next year 18 boreholes will be sunk over a six week period with the results forming the basis for a future management programme.
