Between them and me, was the Environment Agency depot for the Broomhill Sands Coastal Defence Scheme. The wording, on the top half of a noticeboard beside the road, read:

We are working to improve flood protection for over 1,300 homes and 100 businesses by increasing the standard of protection to the area from 1 in 20 years to 1 in 200 years, taking into account predicted sea level rise. This includes: improving a 700 metre length of shingle beach and replacing the timber groynes at The Suttons; constructing a 1,700 metre length of rock revetment and wave wall along the remainder of the frontage; widening and improving the existing access way along the top of the sea defences including pedestrian access steps and ramps to the foreshore; (and) creating and installing a number of artistic works using timber reclaimed from the old groynes.

The £30 million scheme has been funded by Defra and will be completed in December 2015.
