Jaywick History

In Saxon time Jaywick was called "Clacton-inga-wick" which become Clacton-jeywick and then shortened to Jaywick. The 'Sands' addition was made to highlight the outstanding award-winning stretch of sandy beach it boasts. It is situated approximately 2 miles west of Clacton on Sea.

Jaywick Sands was the site of a dairy farm, eventually sold by the landed gentry. There are a number of stories around the history of the area. One story is that small plots of land were purchased by Londoners, many of whom were workers at the Dagenham car plant, which is the reason why many of the streets in the most westerly section are all named after cars ie Rover, Hillman and Buick.

Certainly in 1928 Frank Stedman purchased a large amount of the area with the intention of making it a holiday resort and many of the chalets/bungalows were built and used as temporary accommodation or beach huts. Over time, a major catalyst being the shortage of homes during the war, a number of these dwellings were extended, bathrooms added and used as permanent homes with many of them still being used today. Although some of the bungalows have been left empty and fallen into disrepair, the whole infastructure underwent regeneration in 2016 which improved the overall look of the area.

Although a predominantly residential area, there is still evidence of its holiday resort heritage, with second-home owners enjoying summers by the sea or offering their self-catering accommodation as holiday-lets to holiday makers, and the Martello Beach Holiday Park providing holiday caravan accommodation. The Martello Tower itself, part of Britain's sea defences against Napolean, still exists and is now a museum.

The area is most popular with walking enthusiasts, being a bracing 45 minute walk to Clacton Pier along the seafront and dog-owners who can walk their dogs on the beach nearest the cottages all year.
