Tendring is the eponymous village and civil parish of the Tendring district of Essex — and before that of the Tendring Hundred.[2] It gave its name to the larger groupings because it was at the centre, not because it was significantly larger than any of the other settlements. The linear village straddles the B1035 connecting Manningtree with Thorpe-le-Soken.[3]

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.[4]


The village is on the B 1035 road and close to the A120 road. There are bus services to Clacton-on-sea and Colchester.
