Bexhill Groyne 75

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 the Groyne 75 post number were taken in 2013. Below is the same post in  2012, 2014 and 2015.






The 3 posts above, showing the top and the seaward side, were photographed in 2011, 2013 and 2015.


These 3 photographs are of the end-post taken 2012, 2013 and 2015. The end-post spends much of it’s time underwater and is colonized by barnacles and mussels.



Groyne 75 joins the promenade at Channel View West.


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