About Fingringhoe

Delightful Fingringhoe is home to one of the most outstanding Nature Reserves in the country. It was formed out of a disused gravel pit near the estuary of the beautiful River Colne and today it is the premier flagship of the Essex Wildlife Trust. It is home to an immense range of habitats and is noted for Brent Geese, dunlins and curlews in winter. There are wonderful wild grassed areas and heathlands covered in rich gorse. There are reedbeds and ponds that provide valuable breeding grounds for rare species. There is a visitors centre and several nature trails.

It's close proximity to the coast assures this little place a host of visitors all the year round, they come as much to enjoy the charms of Fingringhoe and the excellent sailing and surfing as they do to relish the rarities of the nature reserve. This is an all round tourist resort that is good for families and offers excellent facilities for all visitors.
