Salvation Army citadel
This picture shows the Salvation Army citadel on the corner of Old Road and St Osyth Road, taken from the opposite side of Old Road.

The citadel was built in 1901 as Zion Church, when it was used by the Primitive Methodists. Following bomb damage during the Second World War, it was reconstructed in 1952, when the Salvationists took possession.

The bell-towers of the former St Osyth Road Infant School, now Tendring Adult Education College, can be seen in the background to the right of the citadel.

Catherine Booth, the wife of General William Booth and co-founder of the Salvation Army, died in Clacton in 1890.
