SIJ - Day 15 Rough seas test the sea defences at Torcross

This is Torcross at the southern end of Slapton Sands. The shingle ridge and the village are vulnerable to a combination of high spring tides and strong or gale force east or south east winds. The defences were built after a severe storm in 1979 damaged many of the houses you can see, smashing in windows and ripping roofs off as the waves broke over the tops of the houses.
