Battlesbridge is a village in Essex, nestled on the banks of the River Crouch midway between Chelmsford and Southend-on-Sea. It has the largest Antiques Centre in Essex, established in 1967. The Battlesbridge Antiques Centre comprises of five period buildings -Cromwell House, The Bridgebarn, The Haybarn, The Old Granary and Muggeridge Farm, and houses over 80 dealers offering advice, valuations and opinions. Refreshments are available at The Barge Inn or The Old Granary, which also has views over the River Crouch and surrounding area. The Battlesbridge Mills Garden Centre was developed on the site of an old flour mill and is situated by the River Crouch, directly opposite the antiques centre. Battlesbridge has two pubs, The Hawk and The Barge Inn, both on Hawk Hill. Closeby in Rettenden is the Royal Horticultural Society’s Hyde Hall Garden. Created over a 30 year period by Dr and Mrs Robinson, Hyde Hall is set in a 360-acre estate. The cultivated area of the garden - in excess of 24 acres – displays a range of horticultural styles from clipped hedges on the Hilltop Garden to the naturalistic planting on Clover Hill. There is also a woodland, meadows and a Garden for Wildlife.
