Photographer's Note

Barton-on-Sea is in this day and age a suburb of the New Milton conurbation in south-west Hampshire on the Solent coast, famous largely for its plenitude of fossils in the soft rock of the cliff face, and that a nearby earthquake several years ago almost threatened such a slippage down the cliff that the local housing would be completely ruined, and the village decimated.

It was also the first place in Britain to trial groynes on the beach, designed to prevent erosion of the beach.

Barton in WWI was famously a convalescent home for injured soldiers from the Indian sub-continent.
