Harbours and Breakwaters – 1860 Report

Report from the Select Committee of the House of Lords,  appointed to inquire how far it may be practicable to afford better shelter for shipping upon our coasts than is at present afforded, by the adoption of some plan for the construction of breakwaters and harbours less costly and better adapted for certain localities than the system of solid masonry hitherto in use; and whether any such plan appears likely to be also serviceable for the improvement of our national defence….. together with the proceedings of the committee, minutes of evidence, and appendix

faced with the perennial problem of cutting costs, the committee studied various means of construction, in particular floating breakwaters. the committee expressed doubts about the feasability of such constructions, but recommended that a sum not exceeding £10,000 should be made available for further investigation
