Heybridge: Resident concerned local landmark could disappear
A concerned resident is calling for action to prevent a Heybridge landmark from disappearing.
Paul Williams, 47, of Saltcote Maltings, Heybridge, is worried about how much longer a group of beach huts on Mill beach, next to Wharf Road, will remain standing.
One of the huts has been used in the 1987 spy film Fourth Protocol, starring Pierce Brosnan and Michael Caine.
The nearby Saltcote Sailing Club was transformed into a biker cafe for the movie.
Mr Williams, an estimator for a building contractor, said: “Some of the huts look like they are about to fall down. They have fallen into complete disrepair."
