Pictures of Southend-on-Sea

After we uploaded a picture of Southend seafront from 1000 feet, we received a few emails asking about aerial photos of South Essex, and so we added a Southend from the air page.

We’ve now expanded this by adding a few snaps of Southend, which you’ll find on this page. Below are some thumbnail pictures from in and around Southend. At the moment, we’ve added these small images just to give a flavour of what we have in our growing collection, but we need your help to expand this.

If there’s a picture of something you’d like to see, or you’d like us to email you a full-size image of one of the photos below, please email us, and we’ll try to help.
