Remains of anti-tank defences, Taddiford Gap
Remains of anti-tank defences, Taddiford Gap
Taddiford Gap is the only point between Milford on Sea and Becton Bunny (at Barton on Sea) where the beach can be reached on foot. During the Second World War the gap was 'plugged' with the concrete obstacles commonly known as 'dragons teeth'. This stretch of coastline is actively eroding and about ten years ago the last remaining concrete obstacles started to succumb to the slumping cliff.

In the distance is the western end of the Isle of Wight and the chalk stacks of the Needles.
