The View from Bushey Hill
The View from Bushey Hill
The foreground of this picture is Bushey Hill which rises to 63m above sea level. The panorama looks over the flood plain of the River Crouch. Showing South Woodham Ferrers in all its glory. Our ancestors were wise to avoid building in flood plains the clue is in the name! It takes constant management of flood defences to keep towns like this one dry. If global warming causes rises in sea level some hard choices may have to be made.
