Pathway and stakes below the beach near East Mersea Blockhouse Fort. The stakes have been appearing over the past 2 years as the mud has eroded. It is not yet clear what they were for - they have been dated by CITiZAN between 1461 and 1636 AD which suggests they were in use the same time as the Blockhouse Fort.
