Local Monument Refurbishment Works

Caerphilly Castle

Welsh heritage service CADW, in association with Welsh Government and WSP consultants, appointed EDS to carry out a silt trap clearance within the moat of the prestigious Caerphilly Castle, and undergo further work to stabilise part of the moat embankment surrounding the castle.

This work had two objectives, the first to excavate out accumulated material from the Silt Trap down to its base profile in order for the Silt Trap to resume effective functioning. The second objective was to stabilise a section of the western moat bank to prevent further erosion and reprofile a section of overhanging bank that presented a safety risk
