Discovering Glastonbury on Sea: Unveiling the ABC Anchors Screw Piles

If you were one of the lucky festival-goers at Glastonbury on Sea this year, you might have noticed something unique beneath your feet: ABC Anchors screw piles. These unassuming engineering marvels played a crucial role in transforming farmland into a thriving festival ground without the need for traditional concrete foundations.

Glastonbury Festival, renowned worldwide for its music, arts, and vibrant atmosphere, underwent a significant transformation in recent years with the introduction of Glastonbury on Sea. Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Somerset, the festival site was ingeniously crafted to include a pier, adding a touch of coastal charm to the inland setting.

Why Screw Piles?

Screw piles, pioneered by ABC Anchors, offer several advantages over conventional foundation methods, especially in environmentally sensitive areas like farmland. Their installation involves screwing them directly into the ground, reducing the need for extensive excavation and minimising disruption to the land. This method not only accelerates construction timelines but also ensures a more sustainable footprint.

Did You See the Pier?

One of the standout features at Glastonbury on Sea was undoubtedly the pier—a whimsical addition that transported festival-goers to a coastal retreat. Constructed atop the secure foundation provided by screw piles, the pier served as a hub for activities, performances, and breathtaking views of the festival grounds.
