Always use Ronseal to protect your wood from damp

Its a long time since I heard that brand Jeff - Ronseal. It looks like you have rot in your groyne mate! I wonder if they use wood from trees that is rot-proof. Here, wood is such a major building material and so we know a lot more about different timber than I ever did while in UK.

These groynes continue to withstand the raging North sea Jeff..sadly, they are at greater risk from a neglectful local authority who steadfastly refuse to maintain them!

I think that they were installed before the great storm of 1953 when the adjacent road bridge and a large chunk of the sea wall was washed away. A 12 year old boy at the time, I remember this well :)

Best wishes for 2013 bud!

Kind regards.

Happy New Year Jim

I see things like this in coastal spots all over the place and it saddens me that nobody has the vision to renovate and preserve them for posterity.

It's not just North Yorkshire!! Regards

I'm on the ball replying, as ever, Jethro

My son lives in a very modern house in NY and I was surprised at the amount of timber used in the construction.

Happy New Year buddy
