Burnham and the River Crouch - Part 3
Map reproduced by kink permission of Ordnance Survey
My second anchorage is to the west of the Fambridge moorings, before Stow Creek. The area is comprised of a gently shelving area of soft mud on the south side of the River which is exposed at half tide. You can anchor so as to dry out, or choose deeper water almost in mid-stream to the north of it. This is a superb spot for watching wader birds, including the odd heron.
