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, a photogenic church, and some beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside and along the sea-wall.

🗺 Find us on the map.



The Village Hall is almost back in full-swing.
Email the Village Hall booking clerk for more information or read more on the Village Hall website.

St. Peter's Church is open with some restrictions.
Visit their website for further information and for links to their YouTube services and Morning Prayer on Facebook.
