I wonder, Could that be Essex post the floods? I ask, because I remember that a lot of chalet type houses were destroyed, and many lost their lives. As for what looks like a tipped over ship in the background...I have no idea.. I shall have a browse..

Friends arriving @ around mid-day....I hope they don't read this, I'm really not feeling up to it, but they are making a special trip from London.

I wonder if I can find some of those old Images.....Anyone remember the date of that great flood?

Well, here is the flood, but the year is certainly wrong:

It's taken from an odd angle. There is probably docks in the foreground or at least a quayside and the hill in the background may have a lighthouse or coastguard or signalling station on top of it. It may be a chalk hill.

It looks more like a Landslip to me rather than a flood.

diy, with that zig zag path you might be right.

I think diy is correct, looks like the tower of St Philip & St James Church on Ropery Road

Nearest picture of Capstone Hill from similar angle I can find is here
