Dengie Peninsula
The Dengie (pronounced with a soft G) Peninsula is an area of South Essex, bounded by the River Blackwater to the north, the River Crouch to the south and the North Sea to the east. The western Boundary of the old "Dengie Hundred" ran from (and included) North Fambridge to Woodham Walter: The nearby town of Maldon was not part of the Dengie Hundred as it was a borough in its own right. See LinkExternal link for a map of the Essex Hundreds.

The area has a relatively low population density, with large areas of farm and marsh land. The largest towns are Burnham on Crouch with a population of c. 7,500 and Southminster with a population of c. 3,800.
