Product Description

Synopsis

In the early months of 2005, Jason Orton and Ken Worpole walked or cycled much of the 350 miles of the Thames, Crouch, Blackwater, Colne Estuaries and North Essex coast, in order to produce two linked essays - one in photographs, the other in words - which capture the epic beauty of the coastal paths, seascapes, skies, fields and fortifications, which make the Essex coastal landscape so unique.

Format: Paperback
Not a large book, but one that packs a lot in: an evocative and very well-informed text by Ken Worpole, interspersed with exquisite and no less evocative photos by Jason Orton. Their subject is the Essex coastline, which they walked together in preparation for the project: surely the weirdest and least visited of any English seaside county, with its bafflingly ramified creeks and its strange relics of redundant military or industrial uses. Forget the resorts at Southend, Clacton and Walton-on-the-Naze, and head instead for Dengie Flats, Tillingham or Bradwell: you will find open spaces, skies and landscapes that will stay with you long after a hundred pretty villages scenes inland have blurred into one another. And take this beautifully written, beautifully produced and astonishingly cheap book with you - or track one down after you have come back.
