Paglesham's picturesque red-brick and white weatherboarded houses and inns, together with the bleak surrounding marshes which stretch to Wallasea Island and the sea, still suggest the romantic atmosphere of smuggling and contraband, and this village was indeed noted for this in days gone-bye.
Paglesham was long known for it's fine oysters, which were reared in its favourably situated creeks.*
