Daisy Meadow Car Park - Covid-19

Unfortunately and in spite of Government advice to exercise in your own locality, the Basin has been inundated with visitors putting the lives of our residents at risk. In order to protect our residents the Daisy Meadow Car Park will be closed until further notice.

The next meeting of Heybridge Basin Parish Council will be at 4,30 pm on 2nd March 2021. Please let the Clerk know if you wish to join the meeting and you will be sent the link on the morning of the meeting. You will need to download the Zoom App to participate.  

About Heybridge Basin

Heybridge Basin is a small waterside village located where the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation Canal merges into the tidal Blackwater Estuary, fed by the rivers Blackwater and Chelmer.

The two rivers are joined by a lock which is regularly used by pleasure boats. There are two pubs adjacent to the lock (The Old Ship Inn and The Jolly Sailor) which provide traditional British food. There is also a tea room, 'the lock' operated by Wilkin and Sons, the conserves company.

The basin offers walks along the seawall and the canal leading back into the heart of Heybridge itself. During the summer months, rowing boat hire is also available.
