We took a stroll along the shore from Hill Head to Lee on Solent at low water recently on a fine but slightly chilly day in early spring.
It's interesting to see how the landscape is revealed at low water, the sculptural effects of the tide and currents, the wild life, undisturbed far away at the water's edge.
Sarsen Stones (Tertiary Quartzite) littering on the shingle beach below the tide marks , apparently carried down and deposited during the ice age.
Details of some more recent structures reaching out into the Solent and which require a warning marker at high water.
Despite the pressures of development all around, this little stretch of the Solent remains quiet and connected to nature.
