Village of Southminster

Southminster is just a short drive from the historic town of Burnham-on-Crouch which is situated on the north bank of the River Crouch and has the benefit of a railway station with direct links into London Liverpool Street Station. Southminster offers a local primary school, day nursery and pre-school whilst schooling for older children is available in nearby Burnham, Maldon and South Woodham Ferrers. There is a local park with tennis courts and various clubs. In recent years, competition from supermarkets in local towns has reduced the shopping centre, however, Southminster still offers retail and service outlets and it is possible to get most daily needs without leaving the village. Southminster sits in the population gap between large village and small town. Until the turn of the 19th Century it was the largest settlement in the Dengie Peninsula. The 'minster' part of its name suggests either a monastic foundation or the mother church of an area. Southminster in the late 19th Century had a fairly full complement of shops, smiths, wheelwrights, millers and other trades. Southminster's main income came from farming, market gardening and the market and shops until the mid twentieth century when Bradwell Power Station was built and increased house building led to inward migration. This trend accelerated when the railway was electrified and the improved rail link permitted large scale commuting to Wickford and places along the London-Southend main line. The population has nearly doubled during the last forty years to a little over 4,100 at the last census.
