| Events in Heybridge | 10 Places to Stay

Heybridge is a small town adjacent to Maldon, near the River Blackwater in Essex. Heybridge has a number of residential areas to the west of the town which were built in 1995. Before building commenced, a full archaealogical dig was undertaken and the excavations showed the existence of an important Iron Age settlement as well as Roman and Saxon settlements and scattered pre-historic remains. Along the Goldhanger Road are a number of holiday campsites, catering for both permanent residents and visitors. Heybridge's shopping facilities include the Bentall's Shopping Complex on the Colchester Road. The final stage of the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation Canal terminates at Heybridge Basin. The Canal was originally used to transport coal & wood to the inland town of Chelmsford until the late 1970s. Today it is mainly used for pleasure boats and fishing. The Heybridge Basin, where the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation Canal merges into the tidal Blackwater Estuary, is a picturesque area offering walks along the seawall. The rivers are joined by a lock which is regularly used by pleasure boats. There are two pubs adjacent to the lock, The Old Ship Inn and The Jolly Sailor. There is also a small tea room there.
