Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is the beach at Wells which is a long way from the town, possibly a mile due to constant silting. Once there, it is a beautiful sandy beach.

Please click on this link to see the photograph much larger and clearer. Believe me, it is worth the effort.

The beach has strong evidence of groynes.

Groynes are sturdy timber barriers built out into the sea from the beach to check erosion and drifting.

The whole of the Norfolk coast suffers from erosion and silting evidenced not only by the use of groynes but also on the coastal paths which, at times, seem perilously close to the edge!

Though the groyne has a practical purpose, it also makes a great feature for photography.

I wish you all a lovely day, from a warm and sunny U.K., Bev :-)
