West Mersea, Essex

© http://www.merseamuseum.org.uk

West Mersea today occupies more than 2.5 sq km of the south-western part of Mersea Island (just off Essex coast c. 8 km south of Colchester) at 3-12m OD, but the first edition Ordnance Survey map shows most of the area of the present village to be devoid of settlement, with occupation limited to the areas around the church and to the north west of the village, and a scatter of other outlying farms. A Roman tessellated pavement was revealed during recent garden landscaping, otherwise little archaeological investigation has been carried out in the village.
