Brightlingsea, Essex Giclée Travel Poster
Giclée travel poster of Brightlingsea, Essex, depicting a view of 'the Leaning Tower of Brightlingsea' - Bateman's Tower, standing at the end of Promenade Way. The tower was built in the 1883 by John Bateman, who would go on to be Deputy of Brightlingsea from 1887 to 1895, and later Deputy Lieutenant for Essex. The original purpose of the tower is unknown, though the leading local theory is that Bateman had it built for his daughter, who was suffering from tuberculosis.
Today, Bateman's Tower is a beloved local landmark, overlooking Brightlingsea Creek and the many beach huts that line Brightlingsea's Western Promenade. A wonderful location for a beach getaway, Brightlingsea also occupies a surprising place in history, being part of the Confederation of Cinque Ports (as a 'limb' of Sandwich), which are otherwise located entirely in Keny and Sussex.
