This was the best of the weather - which then turned to hail! The beach is being progressively lowered with each high tide, after receiving a grant of sand from somewhere else!

High water at the town end of Walton was a disappointment, as the indicated tide was a high one - but there was a good sea to look at!

There is evidence in the photos above to indicate beach lowering and the scouring of defences.

Another shot of the beach lowering to expose the sheet piling, holding in the concrete, around the wooden piles, in turn holding the concrete blocks in place!

A groyne does its job, centre, whilst the lowered beach, left, gives little hope of delivering any beach material to the next enclosure north! A chance meeting with a fossil-hunter, allowed us to see many small shark's teeth, and this monster!

The view from the end of the permanent defences; a landscapes of cliff-high embayments stretch out northwards. Below this outline is a treasure trove of  slumped forms - rotational slumps, mobile flows and block glide!
