Bexhill Groyne 60

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.

As the levels of shingle rise and fall, and the winter storms come and go, the post tops grow a covering of barnacles and weed which are ground smooth by the moving shingle and then the whole process starts again.

I have many photographs of Groyne 60 showing these changes.

Groyne 60 is opposite the Clock Tower on West Parade.

Tide times for Bexhill.
