Burnham-on-Crouch is a town in the county of Essex in the East of England, and lies on the north bank of the River Crouch. Historically, it has benefited from its location on the coast - first as a ferry port, later as a fishing port known for its oyster beds, and most recently as a centre for yachting.[1]
