Beach Hut - Mersea Island Museum


Illustrated talk by Alan Skinner
Alan was Principal of Greyfriars when it was an Adult Education Centre, but the history goes back a very long way. Before that it had been home to part of Colchester County High School for Girls and then school for Mersea and other pupils before Monkwick School was ready.
It is now a hotel.
