BURNHAM-ON-CROUCH:

The town of Burnham-on-Crouch is situated on the banks of the River Crouch. Historically the town was first a ferry port, subsequently becoming a fishing port known for its oyster beds, and most recently a renowned yachting centre hosting the famous ‘Burnham Week’ at the end of August. The town has a population of little over 7,500, is the principal settlement in the Dengie peninsula and is consequently able to boast many amenities that are uncommon in small towns. These include two primary schools and an academy secondary school, cinema, Burnham yacht harbour/marina, several boatyards, three yacht clubs (including the Royal Corinthian & Royal Burnham), two supermarkets and numerous public houses, restaurants and individual shops. There is a railway station on the Southminster branch line with direct commuter trains into London Liverpool Street (at peak times). The Burnham-on-Crouch Golf Club, founded in 1923, is situated in Creeksea on the outskirts of Burnham and enjoys breathtaking views over the Crouch Valley and River Crouch.
