The last batch of rocks to protect part of the North Norfolk coast from erosion are arriving in Happisburgh village.
Storms in 1953 and 1978 led to erosion at the Happisburgh seafront
North Norfolk District Council has spent £200,000 on 4,000 tonnes of rock for the sea defences.
The residents raised an extra £50,000 to give to the council to buy in more supplies - with donations coming from all over the world.
The Happisburgh coastline has been one of the most badly hit areas in the east of England over the last few years.
More than 25 properties have already been abandoned with large chunks of the sandy cliffs regularly falling into the sea.
Meanwhile the Coastal Concern Action Group is lobbying the government for compensation for threatened property and is calling for more sustainable coastal protection policies.
