An hour of pure
nostalgia. Travel to Clacton by Eagle Steamers and visit: The Palace
by the Sea; East Coast Floods; Butlins Pleasure Park and the
Butlin's Holiday Camp which replaced it; the Steel Stella roller
coaster on Clacton Pier; and much more. This is Clacton in living
In this programme the
reminiscences of local people, together with moving and still images
transport us back in time. The archives of the Clacton & Frinton
Gazette provide the stories that made the news.
Unique pictures, the words of local
people and full commentary. Produced in association with the Clacton
& Frinton Gazette.
