Easterly Edges is a project to document the contrasts and variations of the Essex coast.
In shape, it is complex – by a straight diagonal, it is around 55 miles (90km) from Harwich to Grays, but the entire coastline is around 400 miles (640km) in actual length. The difference is in the estuaries and numerous inlets and creeks. And the transitions too are surprising.
Within a few miles, wildness changes to seaside tourism; industrial landscape changes to bleak and pure saltflat; container terminal changes to beaches and breakwaters.
