Photo of winches on Brighton beach, 1972

This was taken by me when I lived in Brighton in 1972 just before a storm which damaged the winches seen in the foreground (West Pier in background). I wonder if they are still there?

  • There are still a couple of winches on the beach, displayed as part of the Fishing Museum. I don’t think they are the same ones, though.

  • My brother Kerry has sadly passed away since this photo was uploaded – good to see his photo is still here. I used to visit him in Brighton before he moved to Bath, and then Leeds.
