Clacton The Way We Were


This new DVD presents a fascinating look back at bygone Clacton. It explores Clacton’s growth from an insignificant hamlet to a fashionable Victorian resort, its transformation into a playground for day-trippers from London, and its rise to become one of the country’s leading holiday resorts.

This remarkable period in Clacton’s past is brought to life with a selection of old photos and a unique collection of archive film, which captures many aspects of life in old Clacton and the surrounding district from the 1920’s to the 1960’s. It shows many views of the town that will bring memories flooding back for those who remember the Clacton of old – and surprise and intrigue those who don’t.

Many of the events featured in the DVD are brought to life with first-hand accounts from the archives of the Clacton Times and the Clacton Gazette. The DVD is narrated by Howard Ellison.
