EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking print captures the devastating effects of coastal erosion at Fort Godwin, located near Kilnsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The image showcases the severe damage inflicted on the historic coastal battery, which has collapsed onto the beach due to relentless erosion. The aerial perspective provides a unique vantage point, allowing viewers to fully comprehend the magnitude of this natural phenomenon. The once-mighty fortification now lies in ruins, serving as a poignant reminder of nature's unstoppable power. Fort Godwin was once a formidable stronghold protecting England's coastline but has succumbed to the relentless forces of time and weather. Coastal erosion, an ongoing issue along this stretch of coast, has relentlessly eroded away its foundations until it could no longer withstand its own weight. The juxtaposition between man-made structures and untamed nature is particularly evident in this photograph. In addition to showcasing Fort Godwin's collapse, one can also observe nearby caravan parks that are precariously close to meeting a similar fate if not for protective measures put in place. Dave MacLeod's skillful photography allows us to witness firsthand how vulnerable our built heritage can be when faced with powerful natural forces like coastal erosion. This thought-provoking image serves as a reminder that we must continue efforts to protect and preserve our cultural landmarks from such destructive processes.
