I remember when all this was fields
This work looks at encroachment of the sea into human made structures. In this case an old – once much loved – pier in Brighton on the south coast of England, is slowly being reclaimed by the sea into the piers primitive parts. The phrase ‘I remember when all this was fields’ resonates with memories of once green places that have been encroached by urbanisation. This reflects that oneday peoples homes will eventually be reclaimed by the sea.
