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 Groyne 70 post number was taken in 2014. Below is the same post in 2002, 2011 and 2015.
The above post top is the Groyne 70 end-post. The photographs were taken in 2002, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015 (from top left to bottom right).
Groyne 70 marks the east edge of De La Warr Pavilion and the area in front of Bexhill Rowing club.
If you come to see the groyne post please take care and check tide times.
