Flood Protection Works

Project name

Fingringhoe Firing Ranges


Fingring, Essex


Ministry of Defence – M.O.D.

Description of Project

Detailed design of flood defence improvement works at the Fingringhoe Firing ranges


The deterioration and erosion of the existing flood embankment, which provided protection to the ranges behind, led to unacceptable high risk of breach and flooding of the M.O.D.’s land. Herrington Consulting were commissioned to design an environmentally sensitive solution to improve the defences.


The completed scheme comprised enhancements made to the flood defences, which has consequently improved the standard of protection along the study frontage to meet the land owners indicative requirements.
