Flag Hill on the B1027 between Thorrington and St Osyth
The B1027 is an alternative route from Colchester to Clacton.
It starts on the A133 at Wivenhoe Park on the eastern side of Colchester and heads southeast through Alresford and Thorrington before reaching St Osyth. Originally it went through the village but now it skirts it to the north. The road then heads east to Great Clacton, where it reaches a roundabout back on the A133.
In 1922 the B1027 ended here. However, it was extended east in the 1930s under the railway line to its current terminus on the B1032.
