About MistleyMistley is situated on the River Stour 10 miles inland from Harwich.
In 1848, William White's Gazetteer of Essex described the neighbouring Manningtree as "...an improving market town, and forms with Mistley, a port.... pleasantly situated on the south side of the Stour..."
For two centuries, Manningtree and Mistley were important brewing centres and ports. Even today, although perhaps on a reduced scale, the brewing industry is still well represented and Mistley is a small but thriving port.
Mistley handles occasional cargoes of timber and other commodities at its upriver quays. The maximum size of vessel is 3,500 tonnes.
