Don't get me wrong - I think it's great that it's been saved, but with coastal errosion happening so fast in some places I would have thought they'd have moved it a bit more than 25m.........or maybe it's just me?

Oh I thought you meant 25 miles blush
it would have made more sense to move it further but im guessing they had to relocate it onto land they already owned.

Costal erosion happens very slowly in that part of the world due to the rock type [dh is into Geology].
