    This study examined the slope stability concept in relation to a slope along the Farnham Bourne in Farnham, Surrey. It involved a slope stability analysis based on detailed site investigations, including a topographic survey and two geotechnical boreholes. The analysis was produced by using a well-established slope analysis software (Oasys Slope), designed to investigate slope instability issues. The analysis was performed using Bishop’s and Janbu’s methods for both parallel and variably inclined interslice forces. Several parameters, including the slope profile changes, different partial factors and groundwater profile variations, were tested for their influence on altering the safety/over-design factor values.
    After establishing the existing safety/over-design value, a suitable slope stabilisation measure was selected and modelled. The impact of the chosen reinforcement technique on the overall stability was tested and verified using different reinforcement parameters.
