Sun,ice cream,cockles,chips,concrete & blisters


Walton-on-the-Naze and Frinton-on-Sea are within
walking distance of Clacton, if you are reasonably fit
and enjoy endless concrete sea defenses. They are
around seven miles north. Or you can take a half-
hour bus ride - we finally spotted a bus just as we
staggered into Walton!

Walton-on-the-Naze is known for having the
second longest pier in England. We never
reached the 'Naze', it was one mile too far for our
sore feet.

    It is fortunate I stumbled across your Clacton page - there goes my next-visit Accoms idea of ditching the B&Bs for a cheap overnight on someone's coast! Lovely views here, it has been a while since I last visited an English seaside resort area.

    So you don't like shell fish then Sean? Much the same is on offer in Sussex seaside towns, mmmmm! I love 'em! (thanks, I was wondering when I would find something good to say about this place! :))
