TQ9794 : Old sea wall, Wallasea Island

3 km from Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, Great Britain

Old sea wall, Wallasea Island
Old sea wall, Wallasea Island
This remote corner of Essex has seen a change in policy by DEFRA in the battle against coastal flooding and erosion. The old wall would be too costly to repair so the sea has been allowed to reclaim the area for the first time in 400 years. Nearly 250 acres of Wallasea Island have been flood to create a wild life haven.
