By most standards of today the village of East Mersea is a thriving community, which can boast not only a pub, shop and church but also a vineyard, pick-your-own and restaurant.
Historically, East Mersea has influences going back to Celtic times. In the Middle Ages Colchester Borough granted oyster dredging and fishing licences to East Mersea men. During the Civil and Napoleonic Wars parliamentarian forces captured the Mersea Blockhouse and garrisoned the Island. An Admiralty owned underground structure is believed to still exist below the footpath at the end of Shop Lane.
The architecture of East Mersea is varied and of note are the Church, East Mersea Hall with its moat and thatched C18 cottage forming part of the Dog & Pheasant Public House.
Parts of East Mersea are sites of importance for nature conservation. Cudmore Grove Country Park is sympathetically managed for wildlife, fauna and flora. The Colne Estuary is also of international importance, especially as a waterfowl habitat. East Mersea Parish Council serves a rural community of some 110 residences. Mersea is the most easterly inhabited island of the United Kingdom.
