Groyne or what?

I’m not sure what the correct description of this is.  It’s another shot from Lyme Regis, and although this is not a typical groyne of wood or steel, designed to prevent the migration of sand or shingle on long beaches, in this case it seems to provide the same function.  Over the years these rocks have generally succeeded in keeping Lyme Regis’ beach where it should be.
