Welcome to Tendring

A coastal district in the English county of Essex

Tendring is a district located on the north east peninsula in the Essex county of the United Kingdom. Essex was once the ancient Kingdom of the East Saxons, stretching from the southern coast of the North Sea on the east, to beyond London on the west. Today, Essex is much smaller, and is bordered to the west by North East London. This is not a recreation of Tendring, but is a fictional region based on the landscape of Tendring and parts of its neighbouring districts.
