Navteq doesn't acknowledge the pier at Clacton, nor does TeleAtlas
(from Bing); the OS county boundary from Meridian also ignores the
pier. OSM shows the pier as 'man_made=pier' going out from the shore
and Mapink renders it like land. I would suggest that it correct. As
for whether it is 'in Essex' or not I suggest that a judge would say
it was even though the OS say it is not!
