Mudeford Spit Bournemouth, Dorset, England.

A photographic essay of this unique location on a bleak and cold January morning.
Trailing off the eastern beaches of Bournemouth and forming the boundary of neighbouring Christchurch Harbour is the ancient sand spit known as Mudeford Spit. Today the spit hosts a collection of famously expensive beach-huts along with a fine beach and a diminished dune structure that once used to occupy this peninsula.
The bleak skies and biting wind display a stark contrast to the warmth and buzz of the busy summer season here.
Small cabins first appeared at Mudeford Spit in 1931 and there have been 350 built since the mid-1960s.The pocket-sized properties sold for as little as £100 in the 1960s.
Today the huts have been selling for up to £240,000.
