Whatever Floats Your Boat, Metal Screen and Pioneer Trail

"Whatever Floats Your Boat" :- A shot of one of the apartment blocks located within Brighton Marina on the south coast of England. Construction of the Marina started in 1971 and much of it was completed by 1979 but bits have been added and altered ever since. It's a huge Marina covering (approx) 127 acres with 1,600 berths and is still the largest in Europe.



"Metal Screen" :- The title says it all really. This metal screen is deep inside the 11th Century Chichester Cathedral in Chichester, West Sussex and is part of the Choir and Presbytery. It's a fascinating place to walk around, rich in history with many treasures and artworks.



"Pioneer Trail" :- Do you see them? During low tide the rocks on the beach between the marina and Rottingdean village (on the south coast of England) are exposed and so are some unusual marks. Parallel lines running straight and true carved into the rocks. These are all that's left of Magnus Volk's Brighton and Rottingdean Seashore Electric Railway which ran between 1896 and 1901. You can read more about it here :- Rottingdean Seashore Electric Railway. There was a thick sea mist on the day that I took this which made the lines look like they go on forever.
