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.
The posts shown above, from the mid intertidal zone, were photographed in 2002, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2012, and 2015. Between 2002 and 2007 a fairly solid layer of barnacles covered the top; at some point between 2007 and 2010 the barnacles have been ground away by heavy sea and moving shingle.
The building above is the first section of Alderton Court, and below is the new shelter that stands near the top of Groyne 62.Tide times for Bexhill.
