Corroded bogie
Corroded bogie
Now mounted on a concrete plinth which bears the words "Time and tide wait for no man" this rail bogie had been buried since WW2 under sand but was uncovered in 2010 by coastal erosion. It is said to have been used during WW2 to transport ammunition and also served as a moving target for airborne gunners as it ran along its short length of rail track.
