Why is it called the Broomway Beagle?

The Broomway is an an off-shore ancient and treacherous path which was once the only link between the mainland and Foulness Island.  In 1953, floods struck the area and cut off Foulness and this path proved to be a lifeline.  The path leads almost a mile out to sea and earned its name by stick-like broom handles which were used to mark the path.

Beagle was the ship on which naturalist Charles Darwin made his evolutionary voyage.  The ship was used as a blockage in the creeks around Wakering in 1857 as part of an anti-smuggling effort.
