Photographer's Note

Flint walls can be found throughout both the English counties of East and West Sussex. Flint is an impure opaque microcrystalline greyish-black form of quartz that occurs in chalk. Flint has been used extensively as a building material throughout southern England since Roman times, where no good building stone was available locally, and brick making did not become widespread until the later middle ages.
This particular wall runs along the riverbank of the River Adur at Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex.
