Lepe Beach

Reference: HA14
Location: Lepe Beach
Gallery: Hampshire,

These two iron structures known as the Dolphins are visible in the sea off Lepe and are remnants from the 2nd world war. They are the remains of jetties which were used as moorings to load the ships bound for Normandy. On the shoreline are two bollards which were used to secure ships during the loading of troops and supplies. Initially they can appear a little ugly but they make great focal points and are more appealing the more you look at them and they are of course a permanent reminder of a great historic moment. The rising sun briefly broke through the heavy cloud cover reflecting in the sea and the surf.
