This site is intended to inform those who read it, about JAYWICK a village on the East Coast of England close to Clacton. A place much maligned by the local authorities and the press in years gone by, but now recognized as an area much deprived of resources and infrastructure throughout its existence. In spite of, or maybe because of this a strong feeling of community has evolved in it.
Jaywick itself comprises of four main areas, Grasslands, Brooklands, the Village and the Tudor Estate. Brooklands and Grasslands have perhaps been the most deprived and forgotten areas, having the barest of amenities and some of the poorest housing in Europe, despite this the vast majority of the people who live there love it. The village has slightly more amenities in the way of shops and Post Office and again most of the people that live there, would not wish to live anywhere else. Finally we come to the Tudor Estate, or West Clacton as the Estate Agents prefer to call it, to avoid the stigma that they always attached to the name Jaywick.
