Leigh on Sea

The sun was shining so I took myself off to the seaside for the day to capture some images of a typical  small British seaside town.

Leigh on Sea is on the north side of the Thames Estuary and a few miles from the open waters of the North Sea. For hundreds of years, it was a busy port for ships coming into London.  When the railway link to London was built in the 19th century it became a busy holiday destination for day trippers and holidaymakers from the city

I walked along the promenade from Leigh on Sea station to Chalkwell and captured the following images. The picture of the Rock Shop and Mayflower Pub are similar to many found in seaside towns around the UK.

I thought my eyes were deceiving me when I spotted ‘Batman’. He must have been sweltering in the sunshine.
