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 photographs used to create Groyne 74 post number were taken in 2015. Below is the same post in 2011, 2013 and 2014.
These 6 post tops come from quite high up the groyne. If you look carefully at the photograph of the groyne you can make out a cluster of post tops without ferrules just down from the highest posts. The photographs were taken in 2002, 2012 and 2015.
If you come to see the groyne post please take care and check tide times.
Groyne 74 joins the promenade on Channel View West and the promenade.
