Clacton-on-Sea, Essex Even though the nearby village of Great Clacton is an ancient Saxon settlement, Clacton on Sea is a comparatively new town, born in 1871. Paradoxically, it is among the oldest recognized place of human habitation in Britain, as evidenced by a 400,000-year-old spearhead found within the cliff below Clacton Hospital, and numerous other archaeological finds.
