The unsolved problems of large landslide complexes in soft rocks

The long history of site investigation coupled with extensive remedial works extending over the last century devoted to this landslide makes a contrast with many equally large landslides elsewhere which because of their location in urban areas with access difficulties have received relatively little geotechnical investigation and more especially with those within conservation areas which have had negligible geotechnical attention. The fact that despite the considerable study of the former there are still unsolved problems, emphasises how much there is still to be learnt about the latter.

Abstract

The characteristics of large landslide complexes are illustrated by reference to the famous Folkestone Warren Landslide on the English coast. The long history of site investigation coupled with extensive remedial works extending over the last century devoted to this landslide makes a contrast with many equally large landslides elsewhere which because of their location in urban areas with access difficulties have received relatively little geotechnical investigation and more especially with those within conservation areas which have had negligible geotechnical attention. The fact that despite the considerable study of the former there are still unsolved problems, emphasises how much there is still to be learnt about the latter.
