Despite the fact that Burnham on Crouch is a ‘one-road town out in the sticks’, it is the best connected town in the area.

It has a railway line that, during rush hour, can have you in London’s  Liverpool Street inside an hour.

The bus service is reliable and the roads serving the town, while somewhat bendy, offer beautiful views of the countryside and are, generally, pretty well-maintained.

Burnham is about 40 minutes by car from the M25, using the A13, A127 or A12.


Transport Representative

Transport Representative for the Town Council is Reverend Paul Haworth.

Overseeing bus and train services, the Transport Representative acts as liaison with Essex County Council’s Railway Partnership, which looks after the Crouch Valley line. Sometimes the Representative is able to arrange ‘special trains’ to be laid on for non-profit events.

Reverend Haworth is very active in leading the volunteer team who look after the railway station.

Reverend Haworth is also on the Dengie Hundred Bus User’s group and the ECC Parish Transport Group.
