So, walking about after doing Frinton park court shopping mall (will upload report soon) I found this, didn't have time to get in to it and seeing as it was next to the pier, there were a lot of people about :/.

This is sort of an external report but more really just a heads up for someone a bit more local to get some decent pictures.

Anyway, it's not just some old bar, it's massive, it has a tower of some sort that I reckon would supply you with some amazing high up shots. It's up on the market at the moment and after a quick look all windows/doors seem to be boarded and locked. However this site is definitely doable.

Tendring council documents for the place: http://idox.tendringdc.gov.uk/onlin...o?activeTab=relatedCases&keyVal=001E0KQBLI000

Other than that, this, and the fact they used to serve real ales, is all I can find: http://pubshistory.com/EssexPubs/WaltononNaze/sanctuar.shtml

The external pics:

From south.


From north looking at the neon sign.

From west, through a newish housing development.


Another from North.


It looks big and looks good. Just hope someone can get down there and enjoy it before it's redeveloped into another 'deemed to fail' sea side pub/hotel.

Message me if you have questions, i'll try and help.

Hope this helps.
