Brightlingsea

Brightlingsea is a seaside town in Essex (England) in the district Tendring with about 8,500 inhabitants. It lies approximately between Colchester and Clacton-on-Sea at the mouth of the River Colne in the English Channel. The traditional industries include fishing (with a famous oystercatcher) and shipbuilding. Since the decline of these industries, the city has become a commuter city and a popular retreat. The city has an active recreational shipping scene. The Brightlingsea Sailing Club organizes sailing competitions and has already produced many champions on an international and Olympic level. In the center of town stands Jacobs Hall, the oldest timber-framed building in England. In the Victoria Square in the middle of the city are mainly shops.
