What I Did in Shoeburyness

Shoeburyness, known to locals as just Shoebury, is a suburb of Southend located where the estuary of the River Thames becomes the North Sea.

When I was a teenager, East Beach was (and I`m sure it still is) a favourite place for families to have a day beside the sea.

During the 70s, I took part in an organised visit by the committee of the South End Conservation Area Society to the historic barracks. There is now extensive housing on the site.
