World War 2 coil of barbed wire on Newburgh beach.
World War 2 coil of barbed wire on Newburgh beach.
High tides and strong winds have revealed coils of barbed wire from the beach defences built in 1940 in anticipation of a German invasion. The wire was carefully coiled when the defences were cleared at the end of the war, but never collected.
