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 number for Groyne 76 were taken in 2012.
Below is the same post in 2002, 2013 and 2015.
These six photographs taken 2001, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 show it’s progression from a post to a remnant of a post.

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