Coastal Erosion
Coastal Erosion
The sand cliffs are being constantly eroded by the sea. The rubble is from a WW2 gun emplacement. The defences fell into the sea in the mid 1970ís. The line of stakes going out into the sea is part of an attempt to halt the erosion. It has been partly successful however the beach is a lot less sandy than it used to be.
