 River Blackwater from source to sea. The cliffs by Cudmore Grove, East Mersea. The former WW2 gun and searchlight emplacements have toppled over the edge and are on their way down to the beach. There were two 4.7 inch gun emplacements here and two searchlight emplacements, plus an observation post, all on top of the cliffs.
