These photos taken from Rob Balls' book Funland show visually rich costalscapes from up and down the UK. So, instead of looking outward, look inward at what lines our beloved seaside towns...
From Blackpool to Brighton, and Barry Island to Brightlingsea, these richly-detailed photographs capture the candyfloss colours and faded nostalgia of a seaside culture that is peculiarly (yet wonderfully) British.
