Brightlingsea, Essex Giclée Art Print
High-quality art print of Brightlingsea in Essex, England. A coastal town, Brightlingsea sits on Brightlingsea Creek at the mouth of the River Colne, partway between the towns of Colchester and Clacton-on-Sea. Brightlingsea's history can be traced back to the Norman conquest, when the then-village became the personal holding of William the Conqueror. Over the years, Brightlingsea grew into a busy port with a flourishing oyster industry, operating as a 'Limb' of the Cinque Port in Sandwich. Today, Brightlingsea is a peaceful seaside town, known for its beaches.
Depicted in this illustration is Bateman's Tower, a historic tower built in the late 19th century by local landowner John Bateman, so that his daughter could recover from tuberculosis in a peaceful location with a sea breeze. A Grade II listed building, Bateman's Tower is an iconic part of Brightlingsea to this day, having been refurbished by the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2005 - prior to which it had fallen into disrepair. Bateman's Tower overlooks the North Sea, and is used by the Colne Yacht Club to administer races in the area.
