Site of 1897 seawall breach, Bluehouse Farm, North Fambridge
Site of 1897 seawall breach, Bluehouse Farm, North Fambridge
The wall was breached here in the unprecedented floods of November 1897, and after some ineffectual attempts to repair during which the breach got wider and wider, finally was sealed in 1907 using an inset wall off to the left forming what is now a triangular bay here. The camera is on a fragment of the original line which continued straight across to the far side, the remains are visible at the near end. Behind the camera is a smaller breach which was tackled in a similar fashion.
