Hullbridge (population approximately 7300) is tucked away in the northwest corner of Rochford District and is surrounded by green belt on three sides and the River Crouch on the northern boundary. With over two miles of river frontage the parish is well used by the local boating fraternity, with a number of moorings and three yacht clubs.
At the end of Ferry Road, the River Crouch can be found along with Kendal Park Nature Reserve, the Rose Garden, Pooles Lane car park (free) and a public toilet, which are all managed by Hullbridge Parish Council.
The Centenary Walk starts at the Rose Garden and goes past the Anchor Public house along the river into the Recreation Ground (includes a play area, green gym, basketball court, small bmx/skate park also a large open space for activities), the footpath then goes on towards Brandy Hole; this is one of several footpaths in the network around the village.
Along the river there are the remains of evaporation pans where salt was made in the medieval times but now is a good place to go crabbing.
The village boasts a sailing centre, riverside pub, primary school, medical health centre, public library and a number of churches also a variety of eating places and the usual shops needed to support the community. Hullbridge is lucky to have a number of Community venues - Hullbridge Community Association, Hullbridge Sports and Social Club and the Hullbridge Centre.
