The beach huts at Frinton-on-Sea have borne the brunt of many weather events. Not the least of which was in 1949 when a tidal surge washed them away entirely from Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze. Such extreme weather raised the question of the inadequacy of the tidal defences in Essex, and many debates were had. Tragically, it took the weather of 1953, when the floods' death toll was in the hundreds before significant work was done. Much later, the weather of 10th January 1978 was so severe that gales decimated the beach huts, transforming them into no more than piles of wood.
