Welcome to Beaumont cum Moze

Beaumont-Cum-Moze is a village and parish in the Tendring hundred and union, 2 miles north of Thorpe, 14 miles east of Colchester station, 9½ miles south-west of Harwich, and 8 1/2 miles south-east of Manningtree. It is at the head of a large creek of the sea and has a wharf.

If you take a circular route from Thorpe-le-Soken passing through Landermere, Beaumont Quay and Beaumont-cum-Moze along a very pleasant stretch of the creek there are excellent views over the Walton Backwaters and Hamford Water.  At one time this area was regularly in use by Thames sailing barges. The famous remains of one of these craft ('Rose') can be seen at Beaumont Quay.   This quay, now disused, was built of stone recycled from the old London Bridge. You will also see an interesting row of cottages.
