3rd February 2022 Yesterday as part of my between the Bridges Project I went down to Walton on the Naze for a couple of hours. A dull February day wasn't the best of conditions to show it off in its best light, but it would take more than some sunshine to bring this run down tumbleweed seaside town back to life. I really wanted to concentrate on the area around the Pier as that is the main visitor attraction and the concrete walls and angular structures are my kind of thing. It really was a cold uninviting and somewhat desolate place, I would have my work cut out trying to make it look interesting. The facade of the pier is undergoing some renovation work, which will hopefully brighten up the frontage but within a few yards there are many dilapidated buildings and the area really is quite run down. There were a few shops open and there was a small market, but you couldn't describe it as thriving place. Walton also has The Naze and it's Tower and Titchmarsh Marina, but on such a dull and miserable day I don't think I could have taken any images to do them justice and I hadn't the muse to try and do pretty. Cold, miserable and run down was the order of the day. On my journey home I noticed there was a music memorabilia shop at the end of the High Street, but I didn't have chance to stop. On further investigation it has some really good reviews so I may well return later in the year. To view the full size images click and scroll through the gallery.
