About

Tollesbury Wick Marshes is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI); this guide offers a short and long walk around the spectacular reserve, which is today managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust. Both routes make for superb walks as they provide plenty of interest; there are good views of the Blackwater Estuary and Mersea Island, as well as excellent opportunities for bird-watching. Tollesbury is now renowned as a yachting centre; once upon a time the marshes were the haunt of smugglers.
