The Great British Woodstock: The Incredible Story
of the Weeley Festival 1971, By RAY CLARK
In the tiny village of Weeley, near Clacton on Sea, Essex, local bands were being booked to play and make a bit of money for charity. But the Weeley Festival soon spiralled out of control as top name bands attracted 150.000 revellers with the resultant chaos of fires on site, pitched battles with the Hells Angels and more. The tiny village was overwhelmed and then at the end came the expected question ' where did all the gate money go ? '.

Offshore Radio Engineering - 2017 Updated Edition
By JAN SUNDERMANN
The Port of Tilbury had been home to our ship the Ross Revenge for ten years, but the port authority eventually decided that it was time for her to either leave or be compulsorily scrapped.
On the last day of July 2014 we sneaked her out on to the Thames and headed for a new location on the wide River Blackwater in Essex.
