Holland-on-Sea, know previously as Little Holland, is a seaside town on the Essex coast. A typical retreat for holidaymakers to get away from the hustle and bustle of Clacton, Holland-on-Sea too boasts beautiful beaches albeit less populated. Captured on Super 8 ‘Moviechrome’, amateur filmmaker and retiree to the Clacton area, Mr Gregory, presents Holland-on-Sea in the nineteen seventies. The film originally featured muzak but has been removed due to copyright.
