About Goldhanger

Goldhanger is a beautiful ancient village on the north bank of the Blackwater Estuary in Essex. We are about four miles east of Maldon, tucked away off the main road. This helps to retain the peaceful charm that makes it a delight to live here. Read more about Goldhanger here.

What you can find on this website

Local information is listed in the menus on these pages. This isn’t the same as the menus at one of our local watering holes and you won’t find any delicious dishes on them – unless there is something the WI have added. This menu is a list of stuff about the village and how to get here, which is a delicious thing in itself.

The images on some of these pages are a bit tongue-in-cheek but that’s because we’re a playful bunch. You can see the real village by either visiting us or having a look at the picture gallery.

If you’re wondering about the marigolds adorning the background on this site, then read this page – there is a very good reason for it, be assured.

If you live in Goldhanger, tell us what you would like to see on this website by going to this page and sending in your suggestions. It’s your website – let’s make it a good one!
