BRADWELL s a quiet village, and has been a special place from Roman times to today.
With peaceful walks and a smugglers' pub just minutes away, you could not ask for a more relaxing spot. Nearby St. Peters Chapel is said to be the oldest church in Essex.

Visitors Information

Visiting yachts are welcome, and on arrival should berth at the

visitors berth marked by a notice board at the end of "A"

pontoon. From there they will be directed to a suitable berth by

Marina staff. Bradwell Marina is situated at Bradwell Waterside,

on the south shore of the Blackwater River. It is ideally placed for

the east coast sailor, with the Blackwater Estuary "on the

doorstep", and within easy reach of the other Essex rivers. It is

also well placed for cruising to the French, Dutch and Belgium

coasts.

Road access from London is by the A127 trunk road as far as

Wickford, and thence by the B1012 through Latchingdon, Mayland

and Steeple.

The yacht basin itself is admirably sheltered, as it was excavated

behind the sea wall and is therefore completely enclosed. The

only exception is the entrance channel which was cut through

the sea wall.

There is no lock and the marina is accessible at all states of the

tide for shallow draft craft. Deeper draft vessels must excercise

caution at low water especially during spring tides, as the

navigable channel in Bradwell Creek becomes shallow. The

marina basin and entrance were excavated to give a minimum

depth of 6-8 ft.at low water springs.

Diesel and unleaded petrol at the fuel pier. Clubhouse with

showers, toilets, washing machine and dryer.
