ESSEX: THE EDGE OF THE KNOWN WORLD



After Essex, towards the East, is the sea, the North Sea.  Essex with its flat wooded wide landscape, skies that are wider still, tatty farmsteads, which are now, overgrown with ivy over red brick. Across the county are gentrified cottages with wrought iron gates and entryphones. However down here near Tollesbury OS reference TL958101 is the end of Essex as it falls away through creeks and estuaries, right into the sea.
