The village of Hullbridge is tucked away in the north-west corner of the District and is home to 7,300 residents. It is surrounded by green belt on three sides and the River Crouch on the northern boundary. With over two miles of river frontage the parish is well used by the local boating fraternity, with hundreds of moorings and three yacht clubs. Hullbridge contains a network of well-maintained footpaths, which meander through the surrounding farmland and a nature reserve. The village takes its name from a Roman bridge that once crossed the river. Along the river bank there are remains of evaporation pans where salt was made in medieval times.
