Heybridge Basin

January 17, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Found on the Essex coast Heybridge Basin is at the end of the 13 mile Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation (canal) and is where the sea lock joins the canal to the Blackwater estuary.

In 1793 the basin was dug out of the marsh to enable sea going vessels to enter the canal and unload their cargoes onto the barges for transportation inland to Chelmsford.

Heybridge basin is well worth a visit with great views, seawall walks, two good pubs and a tea room.
