Stainless UK have supplied over 100 stainless steel Grip-Bar rock anchors and ground anchors to local contractor Aquasource (SW) Ltd for installation as part of the works to repair and protect the cliff path at Trevelgue Head in Cornwall.
The Trevelgue Headland, near Newquay is the site of an Iron Age promontory fort built to defend a 700m long headland and the natural St Columb Porth harbour. The English Heritage site contains eight significant earth and stone ramparts, two large Bronze Age barrows and the foundations of a number of round houses. With a history dating back 8000 years, the site is one of Cornwall's best ancient monuments. Erosion caused by recent winter storms combined with increasing visitor numbers has meant that repairs are now needed to the coastal path that runs through the site.
