  1. The invention of Essex: how a county became a caricature | News | The Guardian

    Where I’m from. I’m wondering if this is a Zazzle strategy by the Guardian — they’ll now produce a clickbaity article on every UK county.

  2. reverie and anarchy

    Danny on Essex New Towns and leaving places behind.

  3. Watch Our Holidays 1932 — BFI Player

    Lovely old home movie of holidays in Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. Lots of smiles and clothing.

  4. East Anglian Film Archive: Basildon - Our Town, 1974

    Short documentary about the Essex Town. Lots of council-provided facilities. Things that now look a bit small, grey and grim. A lot of standardised typefaces. Great stuff. (via @mala)

  5. Just Another Day - Walton on the Naze - Part 1

    1983 TV documentary about the Essex seaside town, directed by Adam Curtis. On the one hand, it’s just how I remember it from those days, and on the other, 1983 looks really old.

  6. The joy of Essex | Rationalist Association

    Jonathan Meades: “To look down onto the Walton backwaters is equally to look down on the Walton backlands. Such a sense of impermanence and of susceptibility to powers beyond our control is rare in these islands.” (via @antimega)

  7. Essex Fingerposts - a set on Flickr

    Lovely set of familiar signposts. (via Paul Mison)

    There was secret rocket testing going on at Walton on the Naze during World War II.

    A nice simple set of photos of bits of Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex.

    A social network for the small coastal town of Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex.

    A blog and photos about the history of Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex.

  13. Frinton-on-Sea’s historic railway gates removed ‘under cover of darkness’ by Network Rail | UK news |

    Yes, it’s a bit quaint to want to hang on to this stuff. But it’s also a shame objects and practices important to a place and its inhabitants get ditched in favour of efficiency and money.

  14. Facebook | I Know Hans Montanana

    A group for the music teacher at my old school. Reading the many enthusiastic posts… it’s like he’s the lead in a Hollywood movie about a teacher inspiring kids or something. Lovely.

  15. Rickstones Yearbook 1986 - a photoset on Flickr

    Photos and drawings from my school 21 years ago. You can see me in class 4R (the same photo as 4C on the thumbnails). Also, top row of thumbnails, fourth from left. Good work Ted!

  16. Flickr: mills70’s photos tagged with rickstones

    I’m enjoying Ted’s photos from our school in the 1980s. Fashions were strange weren’t they.

  17. Old Walton Pictures Index

    Loads and loads of old photos of Walton-on-Naze, where I often go on holiday.

    My almost-ten-years-old Domesday Witham site got Metafiltered.
