There is a hidden gem in Essex, a peninsular known as The Dengie Hundred. Bordered by the River Crouch in the south, the River Blackwater to the north and the North Sea to its east, with an interior a haven for wildlife and designated as an AONB. It is a land with an ancient past whose ghosts of pilgrims, invaders, pirates, and fishermen are found within its estuaries and marshes. The villages might be small but each have a church that is much cared for and their towers have a thriving community of bell ringers. They have all signed up to celebrate ST.GEORGE’S DAY England’s Day on April 23rd. Go and listen to them.
