This review is based on an analysis of gabions as a means of shore protection. Gabions as a form of sea defence are now widely used on both sand and shingle beaches of the UK. The report concentrates on the three main types of gabion material; plastic covered wire mesh, galvanised welded steel mesh and heavy duty plastic mesh.
