|At some times during the year it looks like this!
This road is the only road that serves Mersea Island on the Essex coast. All traffic going onto and off the island must use this road. However
at high spring tides this road can be covered by the sea water and the island is cut off for an hour or more.
This picture was taken before the maximum high water level was reached and the vehicle has now passed the deepest point. Vehicles with a
high ground clearance can still get through but it's safer to wait if you're unsure.
The maximum depth of water can reach 3 feet.
