Robson visits Essex and Suffolk for a journey along one of the most varied coastal landscapes in Britain. His East Coast journey begins in the famous salt marshes of the Blackwater Estuary, where he finds himself knee deep in sludge as he attempts to run the route of the Maldon Mud Race. At Clacton-on-Sea, Robson recalls the teenage hysteria of the early sixties, as he reunites a group of Mods and Rockers who hit the headlines when they clashed on the beach there in 1964. In Suffolk, Robson visits a giant shingle spit called Orford Ness, once a top secret military base that played a vital role in defending Britain from attack in both World Wars and was a testing site for atomic bombs. His final destination on the east coast is the resort of Southwold where he meets the owners of some of Britain's most sought-after beach huts and hears the emotional stories behind the highly personal plaques which adorn its pier.
