Before… During… and soon to be After

It is always great to see a project nearing completion, and even better to look back and compare images from ‘before, during and after’.

This is a project to reconstruct a riverbank in Buxton, Derbyshire. The original dry-stone wall had partially collapsed, mainly due to vegetation overgrowth, and there was a real risk of further collapse and channel blockage.

The team at RAB were commissioned to design a solution and oversee the repairs. This involved the complete removal of vegetation (including rootballs), and construction of a blockwork wall with dry stone wall facias, utilizing the existing stone where possible. The bank was reprofiled, and the final stage involves reseeding and demobilisation of the compound.
