taken 2 months ago, near to North Fambridge, Essex, Great Britain

1907 seawall, Bluehouse Farm, North Fambridge
1907 seawall, Bluehouse Farm, North Fambridge
The wall along the formerly straight coast line 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 forming a large triangular bay here. The view is towards the head of the bay. The new wall was built using otherwise unemployed labour from London.
