About Brightlingsea Station


Brightlingsea railway station opened in April 1866 and closed in June 1964.

The closure was supposedly due to the high costs of maintaining the railway swing bridge over Alresford Creek, which was necessary to allow boat traffic to the many sand and gravel pits in the area.

The station building was located where the community centre now sits.

The visible relics of the railway's presence today are the public house and the old embankment which is now a footpath.

It is possible to walk along the former route from near the site of the old station to the site of the former swing bridge. This makes for a pleasant, scenic walk alongside the River Colne with its ecologically interesting salt marsh environment.

The cache has been placed at the start of this footpath. Please bring your own pen and tweezers may help with retrieval.
