The Naze Heritage Project aimed to improve public access and facilities at Walton-on-the-Naze. The construction of Crag Walk formed the first part of this project.

The walkway was built at the southern end of the Naze cliffs to provide a viewing platform, with information boards enabling visitors to see and understand the geology and the effects of erosion, whilst also protecting and slowing the rate of erosion on the lower part of the cliffs and beach.

The scheme was completed on time despite delays in the rock delivery and adverse sea conditions. Cost savings were achieved for the Client through innovative working methods, resulting in the scheme coming in under budget. The quality of the completed works exceeded Client expectations and contributed to the scheme receiving an I.C.E. Merit Award for Physical Achievement.
