OUR pub nostalgia continues to cause a real stir.

Tendring CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) member Mick Hearn dropped us a line after enjoying last week's spread on former Clacton and Walton venues.

He said he loves reminiscing but is always saddened to read about once-popular pubs disappearing from the north Essex landscape.

Mr Hearn has dipped into his own photo archive to send us these brilliant pictures, all from Clacton and surrounding Tendring villages.

Who remembers Warwick Castle, in Old Road? It once stood on the site of the current Aldi store.

Or maybe you enjoyed a tipple at The Marine, in Rosemary Road, or The Burrsville Arms, in Burrs Road, Great Clacton.

If you have old pictures of pubs or shops to share with our readers, we'd love to see them.
