Walcott beach with North Sea view
Walcott beach with North Sea view
Construction detail of a groyne can be seen in the foreground. When the tide is out it is often possible to have a closer look at the groynes that are partially submerged at high tide. They are covered with algae and seaweed. Groynes are wooden or stone constructions built into the sea in order to stop sand and pebbles from being moved by the tide waters and hence to stabilise and protect the beach. They also help > TG3532 : Breaking the waves. Wooden groynes are no longer being made.
