Can you still hear foghorns in the towns of Essex? Yes, you can.
This first part is from Leigh-on-Sea, around about The Elms. You hear a foghorn from an anchored ship which must be 2+ miles distant, you can also hear back garden life, bird song and domestic chickens.
The photo is from The London Road, you could still hear it from there but a recording would pick up a lot of traffic noise as well, and that’s more or less constant.
Recorded about 4pm.
You can also listen to the second and third parts of the medley.
