About This Town

Burnham-on-Crouch is a town in the Maldon district of Essex in the East of England. It lies on the North bank of the River Crouch. Historically, it has benefited from its location on the coast - first as a ferry port, later as a fishing port known for its oyster beds, and most recently as a centre for yachting. There are many listed buildings in the town, including the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club. The Mangapps Railway Museum is located nearby.

Although the town has a population of little over 7,500, it is the principal settlement in the wider Dengie peninsula area (population 20,000): it thus has many features perhaps more suited to larger towns, such as a cinema.

Isolated 20 miles from Chelmsford, the nearest large town (and hospital), the town would be very much in decline if it were not for Burnham-on-Crouch railway station. The station is situated on a single-line branch from Wickford, which escaped closure in the 1960s by Beeching, as it was used to supply the nearby Bradwell Power Station. The branch line was electrified in the 1980s, and provides a direct service to Liverpool Street Station in the City of London, allowing the town's inclusion in the London commuter belt.

Burnham-On-Crouch also hosts the highly regarded sailing event known as 'Burnham Week'. This takes place annually, from 25 August to 1 September. The week includes competitive yacht and dinghy racing on the River Crouch. The event is shared among the four established sailing clubs in Burnham: The Royal Corinthian Yacht Club (linked to the sailing club with the same name in Cowes, Isle Of Wight), The Royal Burnham Yacht Club, The Crouch Yacht Club, and The Burnham Sailing Club.
