The villages of Shaldon and Ringmore are located on the Teign Estuary, South Devon. This £7.6 million project involved the design and construction of raised flood defences along 1.7 km of the existing walls, incorporating 10 flood gates, 25 flood windows and doors, access steps, ramps and a pump station with outfall to alleviate the current surface water issues.
