On a clear day, you can see as far as France; the coast of Pas-de-Calais glimpses across the milky green water, beyond the thicket of masts in the harbour, the handwritten sign advertising local whelks, winkles & cockles. An accordian exhales in the distance.
Welcome to Clapton-on-sea, where the shore bursts with fishing boats fending for space in the bustling harbour.
You're hungry, and you're in luck as our local fishermen will be dishing up a convivial feast, straight off the boat.
