High quality art print of Old Leigh, the historic seaside district of Leigh-on-Sea. Leigh grew into a shipping hub in the 16th century. The advent of the London to Southend railway in the 19th century brought changes, leading to the demolition of much of Old Leigh to accommodate the tracks. Presently, Old Leigh encompasses the town's seafront south of the railway, while the majority of Leigh-on-Sea extends across the hills north of the railway line.

This illustration captures the renowned and historic mud flats of Old Leigh in the Thames Estuary, showcasing fishing boats and sailing craft against the backdrop of a timeless maritime scene. The scene focuses on the picturesque slipway nestled between two iconic local buildings on the cobblestone High Street—the Mayflower and Ye Olde Smack, the latter steeped in history as a notorious hub for smugglers. Immerse yourself in the charm and history of Old Leigh through this evocative illustration, portraying the enduring allure of this traditional seaside area.
