Pictures of Burnham-on-Crouch
Burnham-on-Crouch, a small town on the north bank of the River Crouch as it winds its way towards Foulness Point and the North Sea. Very much a town centered on sailing.
Home of the oldest marina in England The marina has a 1930's Yacht Club, just one of the many listed buildings in the town. There is a 1930's cinema here that is still open.
The attractive High Street still has small cottages as well as shops.
Here there is a small ferry that crosses the river in summer over to Wallsea Island, which is really the south bank of the river. Other boat trips are available in the summer, including trips upstream to Battlebridge and to see the seals.
