St Osyth is a village and civil parish in northeast Essex, about 5 miles west of Clacton-on-Sea on the Tendring Peninsula. The centre of the village is dominated by the medieval remains of the Priory, built in 1118 and standing on 383 acres of land. It was established for the Augustine Canons and became one of the great Augustine Abbeys of Europe. The Priory is currently used as a private home. The ancient tradition of ‘beating the bounds’ is maintained in the village. This involves a procession of parishioners, led by the minister, churchwarden, and choirboys, parading around the boundary of their parish, normally around 5 weeks after Easter. Four main roads form a crossroads at the village centre and feature many Tudor houses and Essex weather-boarded cottages. To the west of the village centre is Mill Street which leads to the small harbour and beach, the western end of which is a nudist beach. St Osyth is a popular holiday destination and has several caravan and camping sites. In September the annual sailing event for Fishing Smacks and Thames Barges takes place from Brightlingsea, passing by St Osyth. There is a Martello Tower at Point Clear, west of the village centre, which houses an aviation museum.
