Bradwell-on-Sea is a village and civil parish in Essex, England. The village is on the Dengie peninsula. It is located about 9 km north-northeast of Southminster and is 30 km east from the county town of Chelmsford.
The area has a strong industrial and military history with the nearby Bradwell A Nuclear Power Station (decommissioned) and former RAF Bradwell Bay air station. The area is also a haven for walkers due to its close proximity to the Saltmarsh Coastal trail, spanning 75 miles of stunning coastline in the Maldon District.
This stretch of the coast is one of the only sandy beaches on this part of the coast. The area known as Bradwell cockle spit is popular with families and dog walkers as it is a beautiful nature landscape. Right on the coast is St Peters on the Wall – one of the earliest chapels still in use in this country.
