Mersea Island, Essex and The Strood

Live webcam at West Mersea for monitoring The Strood road crossing to Mersea Island. The road regularly floods.

More about this webcam location:

This live webcam on Mersea Island overlooks the Strood channel and the Strood causeway. The causeway is part of the B1025 between Mersea and Colchester, which can become covered during high tides (known as spring tides). During particularly high tide it is impassable by vehicles including the emergency services, except for those with high clearance, for over an hour. 

Mersea Island is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK and is located off the coast to the southeast of Colchester. The current crossing, or causeway, was first constructed in Roman times.
