BROKEN PILLARS

Broken concrete pillars used as a sea defence.

These used to hold up a railway.

Interesting textures in your photo. I can feel the roughness of the concrete.

The Dawlish sea-wall?

Nothing last forever - not even railways.

Hello Taken for Granted. These broken pillars have been there for quite a time. I imagine they will disintegrate completely one day.

Hi Toffeeapple. The broken pillars are from the old railway bridge which used to link Weymouth with Portland in Dorset. The tracks have been dug up and the railway is no more but the remains of the pillars have been used as sea defences.

Hi Rune. You are right - and, in this case, it has worked out well. A path for pedestrians and cyclists replaces the old line and is well used.
