The retaining wall of the harbour entrance is breaking up with rust creating what appears likely to create problems in the near future!
|Obvious movement which could lead to a major problem(in my opinion)|
|Paper thin in places!|
|The marker post opposite on the Church Norton side is about to collapse|
|A closer view...I dont think it will be there much longer.|
|The old wooden breakwater is becoming more exposed on a daily basis|
...and in places the beach crest is only 4 metres from the Little Lagoon
Looking seaward the Church Norton spit is growing again having retracted during the past year or so
..and old (war time) scaffold pipes are being exposed
|This concrete marker post which was surrounded by the sea at high tides is now well clear of the tides (as it was originally!)|
The trackway from the old carpark has been reduced in length but again is well clear of the high tide mark.
Moving towards the 'new' lagoon a 'proper' beach has been created to the south and the properties behind the new lagoon look as safe now as they have been for several years.
The new lagoon has become considerably narrower as the shingle has been pushed in during the recent spring tides
|This is groyne 4 which was the subject of major concern and where the majority of the rock revetment work took place.|
These rocks were vital in protecting properties a few years ago but now?
|Looking up at Four Winds|
|From the far end of the new lagoon looking westwards|
|The yacht club appears still vulnerable but protected by shingle.|
East Front Road properties have now greater problems but Arun d.c have had recent work taking place moving shingle to create a barrier towards the 'pipe' end/Aldwick
A note pinned to the wall near the Yacht Club beach entrance....
I agree, as some early mornings are so peaceful that voices can be heard a quarter of a mile away!
