Bexhill Groyne 68

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 photograph used to create the groyne post number was taken in 2014. The post images beneath were taken in 2012, 2014 and 2015. The ferrule has eroded and then broken away on the seaward side of the post.

The water fountains on the promenade, next to The Colonnade, above Groyne 68 have created an area of play, laughter and soggy clothing.

If you come to see the groyne post please take care and check the tide times.
