I have been thinking that one of my “new” stretches of coast should have groynes. The ones at Leigh-on-Sea were important for childhood rituals of tide-running, but I feel I should have a new set of groynes to play with. I have just remembered that a visit to Happisburgh when I was at college sparked off a whole batch of sculptures based round groynes and captured stones. I may even have some of the baltic pine “stones” that I made and those wooden “stones” sparked off some other works too. This was all forgotten – perhaps because it was not very good work?
So will the “rules” allow me to pick a place like Happisburgh that I have visited only once as far as I know?
