How to Get Here

Mersea is in a rural part of North East Essex, but unique in that it's very accessible. Connected to the mainland by a causeway - referred to locally as 'The Strood' - which is occasionally flooded for an hour at high tide (see Tide Tables on right).

The event is held at Essex Outdoors - Mersea in Rewsalls Lane, East Mersea.
