The coastline of Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, consists of a shingle beach maintained by a series of T-shaped, wooden piled groynes. This is a photographic exploration of a community of groynes that co-exist on the beach, next to the promenade from West Parade to Channel View. The photographs examine the individual characteristics of the post tops. Using photo montage, the ferrule was manipulated to create the number which links the post top to the groyne in which it exists. This series of blogs presents a small selection from work that started in 2002 and continues to this day.

Groyne 49 starts with around twelve round topped posts and ferules, then changes to pairs of square topped posts. The last post is square topped with barnacles and seaweed. There is a excellent range of patterned, textured and sculptured post tops in this groyne. If you decide to go see, enjoy, be careful and check the Tide times.
