Abandoned Sea Defences at Bracklesham Bay

Abandoned sea defences

Is it just me or does this old breakwater look like a mysterious, five legged robot marching across the beach into the sea? Walk east from Bracklesham Bay and you’ll find lots of these old groynes in various states of disrepair.

At one time the beach came right up the bottom of the groyne. Clearly the groyne didn’t do a very good job, and the beach was swept away leaving the breakwater high and dry.

I have to say the beach was wonderful today. Although it was bright and dry, it was bitterly cold which kept most people indoors and gave us the beach to ourselves!
