    I have, not so long ago, moved from Southend on Sea to Lowestoft, I am going back to Southend for a few days as I have some events to go to, I have been told I can stay on one of the club car parks over night, but will need to find somewhere to wildcamp for 3 nights if they do not let me stay there any more than the 1 night. Don't really want to go to two tree island (dogging site), so any other suggestions would be great. Thanks

    Now back in Sarfend for a couple of months.
    If you're up for it, there's some good street parking in Thorpe Bay, close to the tennis courts. Often see MHs overnighting there.
    Also, not wilding but there are a couple of CLs close by.
    Have also seen MHs overnighting in Asda car park, presumably sanctioned by Asda.

    Thanks, but where are the tennis courts in Leigh, the only ones I can think of are off Chalkwell Ave. & the only CL I can think of is Keddies, but rather expensive.....
    Thanks again.

    I don't have a clue why I said Leigh :) , I meant Thorpe Bay, just off the prom near the sailing club yard.

    Ah you must mean by Uncle Toms Cabin, the car park closes at duck but there are parking bays on the road. May well check it out, but could be a bit too near Shoebury for me.....

    Opposite the shore house harvester. Parking on main road bays, but unrestricted.

    No, not that far up. Back 300 metres towards the Kursaal, tennis courts / bowling? on the right immediately before the mini roundabout. I've often seen MHs parking in the road that runs parallel to the sea.

    Somewhere along this road 51.52912, 0.75815

    Hi, I know where you mean, I have often seen a couple of MH there when I lived & worked in thee area, but with for sale signs on them, could be worth a look if nothing else comes up.
