The Strood causeway flooded at spring tide
The picture shows the causeway to Mersea Island, from the island. The Strood has been in use since the Roman occupation and regularly floods during spring tides. The vehicle shown was the last to go across. Subsequent vehicles turned back and had to wait for the tide to turn. Islanders rely on tide tables to plan their forays to the mainland.
