BEACHSCAPES
To slow down the erosion of the coastline through longshore drift, erosion and to prevent flooding to the reclaimed land behind, groynes have been put into place between Fairlight and Rye Harbour.
The constant action of the wind and sea results in a rapidly eroding and moving coastline. The rocks that crumble from the cliffs at Fairlight are slowly ground down to shingle and sand which is moved along the coast through a process known as longshore drift to end up at Dungeness.
