Where is WhimbrelArt?

It is in Tollesbury, which is a village in Essex with sea on three sides, fringed by marshes where birds have the space to hold big meetings. Amongst these busy birds you may spot (in due season, and if you're handy with binoculars), a whimbrel, which is a funny little fowl with an outrageously long curved beak that does indeed look like a whim of Nature's.

And close to the centre of Tollesbury itself you can spot (without binoculars) the WhimbrelArt gallery, where you will find pictures and other objets de vertu produced in this unique corner of England.

How do I get there?

If you drive into Tollesbury on the B1023, you eventually come to The Square (which is actually a triangle) on the right. It is is Tollesbury's crown, whose jewels include the bus-shelter and pub. Continue about 100 metres and WhimbrelArt is on your right. (If you get to the pharmacy, also on the right, you have gone too far.)

Our street address is 2 East Street, Tollesbury, CM9 8QD.
