Last wild places in Essex





Continuing my series the Last Lonely Places in Essex, and in search of material for my print making I visited Maylandsea. Another edge-of-world village, on the coast on the Dengie peninsula; just south of Maldon and only 25 miles north of Southend on Sea.

An estuary village of bungalows, one Indian restaurant called Posh Spice a ship yard and dry dock and marina. One road in and the same way out, Maylandsea also features a pub named, with typical Essex candour, the Horny Toad (free parking).

I left with some wonderful images of barges and boat yard paraphernalia. x
