Yesterday’s storm nearly broke through the shingle ridge at the western part of the Beach Reserve. In the photo above on the left you can see the newly exposed old (1936) wooden box-wall sea defence, in the centre is the shingle ridge, much eroded by the storm, and on the right there is the grey line of the new gabion wall (next to the private road) that is designed to stop the shingle migrating inland across the road.
