TQ3380 : River defences on the North Bank

River defences on the North Bank
River defences on the North Bank
Just beneath Tower Bridge on the North Bank are some river defences. The concrete river wall is strengthened with wooden revetments which dissipate the power of the waves to prevent them from eroding the river wall, and what looks like a groyne which has been buried in sediment can be seen jutting out into the river where the 'beach' widens and curves. I would think it is a groyne as it did not have a huge effect on the power of the waves and breakwaters don't get buried in sediment, whereas groynes do.
