Changing Coastline- Epple, Grenham & Minnis Bay


































Seven photographs in the Sunbeam collection of the changing coastline between Epple Bay , Grenham Bay and the cliffs at Minnis Bay. Taken around 1958/59 they are copied from the Sunbeam collection in the Margate Museum. Without doubt these quality photographs are a natural history record of the Geological changes to the Chalk Cliffs in these areas compared to todays concrete sea defences. Some of these photographs may have appeared elsewhere but I have grouped the lot together for downloading.

Fascinating to see the caost along there looking like this...any idea when the concrete defences from Epple Bay to Minnis Bay were completed?

Peter, I am not sure at a guess around mid seventies.

Peter, for the record the chalk stack pictured was eventually blown up because it was unsafe.
