Lost land, North Fambridge
The old seawall, running from the camera location straight across to the far point, was breached in the unprecedented 1897 floods. Because of a lack of organization, resources and money, the breach was only finally resealed in 1907, when a new wall heading off to the right and bounding a triangular bay was the only practical solution. Years of tidal scour had made reinstatement on the old line too difficult.
