Hello

Welcome to the washed, scrubbed, and ironed Goldhanger website. Yes, we've been to the laundry.

Find out who's who, what's what, and where it's at on these gorgeous pages. Explore the links for all your local information, events, and the latest village news. Find out how to get here, what the tide's doing (what it's done for countless millenia I suppose), and what the weather may or not be like when you visit.

Announcement: Stephenson's buses have discontinued the late bus and there is no longer a Regal Busways service. What's it all coming to, eh? If you don't have a car you're stuffed really. See timetable >>

Getting here and being here

The 95 bus runs between Tollesbury and Maldon and back again. In Goldhanger there are bus stops in Head Street, Church Street, and the village square. Buses don't run that often, so best check the timetable otherwise you'll be left standing.

SatNav will often take you to Church Street in Tollesbury or in Maldon (yes, they each have one - it's happened before). It gives the locals something to laugh about. You're probably better off resorting to FlatNav - - or you can find a helpful map here.

We're tidal here you know, which means a lot of water goes in and out of the estuary ... twice a day mostly. The tide timetable will help keep you safe as well as tell you when the water's up for a good photo opportunity.

There are no car parks in Goldhanger. Please don't park like a twat when you get here. We have a bus through the village and it needs room to pass and to stop. Be considerate of people who live here - we're not a show village.
