Bexhill Groyne 50

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 50 is opposite `Montserrat’, part of a set of 6 blocks of flats at the west end of West Parade. From the top of the groyne you also have a view of one of the `new’ shelters. Take care by the sea, viewing many of the post tops will depend upon the tide.

Tide times for Bexhill.
