A wonderful pair of reclaimed antique beach groyns.
A beautiful pair of 19th century groyns of exceptional form, formerly of Camber Sands, East Sussex.

Groyns run perpendicular to the shore along a beach & have been used to protect our beaches from being 'washed away' by reducing the movement of sediment for over a century. This pair were were salvaged from Camber Sands when they were replaced with modern alternatives.
Late 19th / early 20th century.
Price is for the pair.
