Seeking prefilled sandbags

.......more correctly, I'm looking for a supplier who can deliver sandbags prefilled with "dry mix" for reinforcing an unstable stream bank. Probably around 200 depending on size
Any Ideas?

Depending on the amount of work required, it might be quicker to use those stone-filled wire cages. I think they're called gabions.

Have you got permission from the Environment Agency? As I understand it, any "in-river works" require permission from them. Especially if you are considering using cement, as spillage into the river of large quantities can cause fish deaths. Would a soft-engineering option be possible, i.e. using willow whips or woven hurdles? These methods stabilise the bank, as also provide habitat. Plus they don't look ugly!
