Tendring is a village and civil parish in Essex. It gives its name to the Tendring District and before that the Tendring Hundred.[2] Its name was given to the larger groupings because it was at the centre, not because it was larger than the other settlements. In 2011 the parish had a population of 736 and the district had a population of 138,048.[3] The linear village straddles the B1035 from Manningtree to Thorpe-le-Soken.[4]

The parish includes the settlements of Goose Green, Tendring Green and Tendring Heath. The church is dedicated to St Edmund. The Tendring Union Workhouse was located at Tendring Heath.[5]

Transport[edit]

The village is on the B1035 road and close to the A120 road. There are bus services to Clacton-on-Sea and Colchester.
