If someone wants to replace the current photos then I have a gallery of photos of the groynes on Portobello Beach, Edinburgh, Scotland: http://www.pbase.com/wangi/groynes. Give me a shout and I can upload to commons. Thanks/wangi 22:19, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
The groyne fields article was requested; I simply redirected it here, though this article doesn't mention the concept explicitly. If someone feels like doing some research and expansion, this site might be useful. --jwandersTalk 07:19, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Moved this here from groin in case anybody wants to incorporate it here:
Second meaning The term may also be used to describe a coastal engineering structure designed to prevent beach erosion and build the beach outward by slowing longshore sediment transport. This is sometimes confused with a jetty, which is instead for protecting harbors, channels, or piers (see groyne).
