Then and now: Sandridge

I believe the link to this picture didn't work. Please try again as the picture is well worth a look:
As work at Sandridge Beach moves to completion, it is interesting to look back at how that part of the beach used to look.

Concrete steps were built to retain the beach in the thirties. They remained a presence until the creation of this beach as part of the Beacon Cove development. The steps remain underneath the beach sand.

Have a look at this picture to see what it used to look like.

I remember the remanent concrete steps being visible in the 1990's before beach refurbishment.
The concrete steps still visible at Sandridge end of beach are possibly part of the same.
