The Essex Way 156: Copperas Bay
The path follows a newly raised section of sea wall. The Essex Way guide (Essex County Council) explains the name: "Copperas Bay takes its name from the old industry of copperas gathering which took place in the bay until the 1870s. Copperas (bisulphide of iron)was dredged from the mud and taken to Harwich to be used in the manufacture of dyes, inks and sulphuric acid."
