SZ2592 : Promontory at the west end of Beacon Cliff

taken 8 years ago, near to Barton on Sea, Hampshire, Great Britain

Promontory at the west end of Beacon Cliff
Promontory at the west end of Beacon Cliff
This small promotory to the west of Becton Bunny was formerly the site of a sewage outfall from Barton on Sea. As such it has rock armour at its base to slow the rate of erosion. Part of a shipping container is on the beach, presumably one from the wreck of the Napoli in Branscombe Bay, Devon. The cliff in the foreground (western end of Beacon Cliff) is being actively eroded - it lacks rock armour at its foot and the beach is starved of shingle by the breakwaters further round Christchurch Bay.
