Manningtree, in the Tendring District, is one of the smallest towns in England and is located close to the River Stour. The name of the town is thought to derive from 'Many trees' and it is situated closed to the Dedham Area of Natural Beauty and Constable Country. The town, which grew around the  wool trade from the 15th to 18th century, is also famous due to its links with Matthew Hopkins, The (self appointed) Witchfinder General. 

The town has many Georgian buildings, as well as the oldest Methodist church in Essex, as well as The Manningtree Museum and Local History Group. There is also Mistely Place Park Tearooms, which are named after the local landmark, Mistley Towers, which are the remnants of an 18th century church.
