Burnham-on-Crouch is a small town on the river Crouch in Essex. The river has always
had a great influence on the town, from the fishing and oyster farms of the past,
to the sailing holidays and river cruises of the present day. Two trips in particular
stand out, one takes you upstream to Battlesbridge, the other river cruise goes out
to the sandbanks where you can view the seals at play. Since the marina was built,
the town attracts hundreds of sailing boats in the summer and is a popular port of
call for those on a sailing holiday. All these pictures were taken recently during
the height of summer in this beautiful coastal town. You can clearly see why this
town is such a popular tourist destination and also known as "the pearl of the east
coast". Some of these images were featured in "Essex Life & Countryside" magazine.

to its current size in 1253 to accommodate the market granted to the town by Royal
