TM1714 : Clacton-on-Sea: Model Yacht Pond

taken 1 month ago, near to Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, Great Britain

Clacton-on-Sea: Model Yacht Pond
Clacton-on-Sea: Model Yacht Pond
This amenity is at the south-west end of the formal seafront gardens, and on the south-east side of Marine Parade West.

The first Ordnance Survey large scale map available online that shows such a pond here dates from 1939. This one and all subsequent ones available show a more elaborate feature with rounded ends rather than the simple rectangular shape of the present one.

A local council noticeboard nearby describes the amenity, somewhat bizarrely, as "favourable with young and old, residents and non residents"...
