Welcome to goldhanger

We are a friendly and energetic community in the heart of Essex. The village lies on the north bank of the Blackwater Estuary, between Heybridge and Tollesbury.

We have a refurbished Village Hall, two pubs, and some beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside and along the sea-wall.
