Storm Ciara , Y Prom – Pwllheli

11/02/2020 by

Its been a rough few days here on the Llyn but if being honest we got away lightly compared to parts of Eryri(snowdonia) Llanrwst was very badly affected,and then our good friend up in North Yorkshire,Carleton,Hebden Bridge,Shap in Cumbria to only name a few.

A big problem we have always had at Pwllheli is that of mother nature trying to take back what was once hers,over the years various schemes have been put in to place on the Promenade from building walls  to developing dunes,landscaping and further along towards the golf ,stone defenses .

During last week’s storm the pinnacle of the storm coincided with a relatively high tide early morning, within 24 hours the level of the beach has dropped by a good 8′ in height as can be seen by the following photos, it has happened before and who knows, the sand might come back, one thing it certain, don’t take mother nature for granted.

who knows what the future holds .
