Leigh on Sea

Another page in its infancy. Some photographs for now, taken end 2008

These photographs are taken in Old Leigh, famous for its cockles and whelks. The cobblestone road lies between the railway line and the Thames. There is a small sandy beach at the end of the road, which is very popular in the summer. Its also the start of the path that runs for miles along the seafront. Easy to get to from Benfleet, by walking, cycling, car or train.

These are the fishing / cockles boats which work the tides.
This colony of seals were taking a rest on the Chapman bank at low water opposite Leigh/Chalkwell. There were 13 on the bank at the time of the picture in August 09.
