Sand on Beach at Brighton

1 post
Sand on Beach at Brighton

Am I alone in remembering that in my youth (say1970-1984) that we would check the tide times, and Dalton's Beach (our favourite - 2 to the East of the Palace Pier) would have at least 10 yards of sand at low tide?

If I'm right, what the hell has the Council done to the beach?

Why don’t you ask them, or look on their website...?

Probably nothing - that's more likely the natural movement of pebbles over the years due to the action if the tides.

Britain's coastine is not a static thing but is always subject to movement and change. Perhaps you should seek out some old episodes of the BBC's "Coast" to watch!

Last time I went to Brighton, the beach was mostly large pebbles.

I recall the days of the Black Rock (outdoor) swimming pool in the era you quoted. I never remembered any (dry) sand of any significance ever on Brighton or Hove beaches. Yes it’s an eroding coastline and without the shingle and groynes there’d be no beach or promenade and Pool Valley would be under sea water!
