Shoebury Boom
Shoebury Boom
The Boom was constructed in 1939 as part of defences on the Estuary. Local people recalled that there was originally a huge net attached to it to trap any U-boats that came to close to the shore. The structure can be viewed closely at low tide but it is not safe to walk on it.
