Seeing the NO TRIDENT sign took me back to the days of the CND ‘ban the bomb’.
I thought I’d give this some age and convert to B&W. Hope you like it.

Heybridge Basin is the start of the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation to which it owes its existence. It was here that the Colliers’ barges unloaded for the journey inland. Construction of the 13 mile canal to Chelmsford commenced in 1793 under the general direction of John Rennie. The basin at Heybridge was dug out at the sea end of the navigation to allow lighters to enter the canal via the sea lock for the unloading of their cargos for transportation inland.
