Local Area

Heybridge Basin is located at the end of the 13 mile Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation and contains the sea lock which joins the canal to the Blackwater estuary. The basin was dug out of the marsh to enable sea going vessels to enter the canal and unload their cargoes onto the barges for transportation inland to Chelmsford. The navigation was completed in 1796 and commericial traffic traffic to Chelmsford by canal ceased in 1972. The canal has found a new use by leisure craft and the Basin is a favourite location for visitors and walkers, as well as being a safe haven for dozens of craft of all types and sizes.

From the sea walls at Heybridge Basin you can take in the splendid views of the Blackwater estuary and Osea Island, and you may even see an historic Thames Barge on a cruise out from Maldon. From here you can walk the sea wall path to Maldon, or in the opposite direction, to Goldhanger and beyond. You can also walk the canal towpath to Heybridge or Beeleigh Falls and the acient hamlet of Beeleigh.

There are two pubs at Heybridge Basin, so if you prefer the less active option, you can sit and relax with a drink and a meal and watch the activity of this popular marine centre. Check out the reviews on Trip Advisor for the Jolly Sailor and the Old Ship. At high tide, boats leave the safety of the Basin through the huge lock gates and enter the estuary. There is also a tea room run by the famous Tiptree Preserve company where you can get a cup of tea or coffee and a cake, sandwich or meal. Ice cream is also available from the kiosk.
