The High Street runs pretty much west to east through the town centre between the bend in the road at King & Hines ironmongers/hardware/DIY shop to the Victoria Inn where it becomes Silver Road to the left, with Belvedere Road to the right. You can just make out the Victoria Inn at the end of the High Street.

The High Street’s defining feature is the Clock Tower, but there are many other buildings of historic and architectural interest along the way.

Heading away from the town centre, the High Street swings north at King & Hines to become Station Road all the way up to the Railway Station at the ‘top of the town’.

It carries on as Church Road over the bridge and north to St Mary’s Church where it becomes the Southminster Road.

The Southminster Road, Church Road, Station Road and the High Street are all designated as the B1021.

Burnham from the air in May. Station Road ends and the High Street begins at the point towards which the leftmost boat is aimed (in Prior’s Dock, right of picture), to the right of the Baptist Church and just to the left of Harvey Smith Accountants, which was the old Barclays Bank.
