So for everyone's information,
At Frinton beach, 20th January 2018,

The low tide is at 7.23am and High tide at 1.45pm.

I will be aiming to get there early maybe about 6am, so I can find parking, set up etc.

How many are planning on coming?
I'll make some flapjack 😁😎 lol
Warm regards

"I'll make some flapjack"
Baking's fun .... but if you have a B&M or HomeBargains store near you, you should take a look at their Higates flapjacks, just 19p for a 75 g bar, and 29p for a 125g bar. Very cheap.

@stillair what street is the parking?
I have looked on Google maps and it a long street by the looks of it.
Got a golf course on the left(bottom) and what looks like a caravan park or beach huts something along those line to the right (top)?
Some directions would be grand. Never been there before.
Catch you all soon.
Warm regards

Hi chaps
Directions:-Take A 12 and turn of at the sign for Clacton (junction29)which feeds onto the A120 heading to Clacton. Then take A133 for Clacton. At the second roundabout bare left onto B 1033 for Frinton, passing through Weeley, Thorpe green, Thorpe le soken, Kirkby cross. Keep on the B 1033 as you get into the outskirts of Frinton, turning right over the railway crossing(an awful junction).Stay on the B 1033 and you will enter the high street. Don't turn left at the seafront sign as it takes the long way around. At the end of the high St (past cafe 19 on Google maps), you come to the seafront esplanade. Free parking all the way along the esplanade. Posh toilets virtually in front of you on the esplanade as you exit the high St .
I'll be parking just to the left there.hth.

Just pondering which coil I should use on my T2? I have the stock 11" and 5" coils and I also have a Nel Tornado 15" coil......
