Local Manningtree Information
The river Stour is the dividing line between Essex and Suffolk and you’ll find the picturesque town of Manningtree located on the southern bank with views out to the Shotley peninsular. Manningtree is fast becoming the most desired property destination due to its trainline access to London and its river, walking and road access to picturesque and historic towns and villages such as Flatford, Dedham, Harwich and Colchester.
For city commuting and entertainment, London is 76 miles due South via the A12/13 or just 57 minutes from the local Manningtree train station.
With a population of around 5,800 Manningtree is part of a wider cluster of two further small villages those being Lawford and Mistley.
Manningtree itself has three local pubs, the Crown, the White Heart and the Red Lion – which claims to be the oldest. There is also a good cross-section of restaurants, local shops and a Coop supermarket by the quay.
Apart from the historic buildings around the core of the town, there are now many modern developments around the fringes and in the close additional villages of Lawford and Mistley.
