  • New Hall Vineyard Purleigh


Purleigh is a village in the Dengie peninsula and within the District of Maldon. The area is close to the River Crouch and is renowned for its climate which is one of the reasons vineyards have been located in the area for several hundred years.  New Hall Vineyard has been on site since 1969 making, it one of the oldest vineyards in England to date. The village of Purleigh has a primary school, village shop and Post Office, the Bell public house a very popular venue for real ale drinkers and lovers of a good Sunday lunch.  All Saints' Church sits atop Church Road and has views overlooking the Dengie peninsula.

The village was first mentioned in a Saxon will of AD 998 but, like most parishes, no detailed information is available about it until 1086 when it appears in Domesday Book.
