Clacton-on-Sea is the largest town in the Tendring peninsula and district in Essex, eastern England, and was founded as an urban district in 1871. It is a seaside resort that saw a peak of tourists in the summer months between the 1950s and 1970s. Today it seems very run down and there are few glimpses of the thriving seaside town that was. In 2015 Jaywick one of it's suburbs was in the top ten most deprived areas in England. Having visited many of England's sea side town I found this the most depressing by far.
