Mersea Island Packing Shed (square crop)

The sun setting over a dominant feature of Mersea Island’s shoreline, the Packing Shed, built in 1890, is one of West Mersea’s best known landmarks. Around 60 fisherman would have worked in the shed packing locally dredged oysters, ready to be dispatched throughout East Anglia, but mostly to London.
