Wivenhoe became an urban district inwivdnhoe remained so until when it became part of the new Colchester district, later designated borough. In woodland formed part of the eastern boundary.

From the river Colne in the south and west of the parish the land rises gradually to over 30 m. There are views across to Mersea Island from the higher parts. Much of the parish is glacial gravel and sand, but there is glacial loam in the north-east and in a small pocket south of Wivenhoe lodge in the north-west. A band of London clay is exposed along the Colne valley, and bands of alluvium extend alongside the river, except on the site of the quay and early town where there is an outcrop of sand and gravel.

The road from Col- chester to Elmstead and Walton-on-the-Naze cuts off the north-eastern corner of the ancient parish.

A little further south the road from Colchester to Alresford runs from west to east across the parish, with a branch running south- east towards Brightlingsea from essex a road turns south-west and then essex to reach Wivenhoe quay.

In they included wivenhoe lane running west from The Entry to a crossing on the river Colne leading to Old Heath called Butchers bridge, where the river was only 6 yd. Horsedrawn traffic could cross the river Colne at low tide between The Quay and Fingringhoe at Wivenhoe ferry bridge, described as 11 yd. By there was a ferry and moveable bridge or ford, accessible only at low tide, over the Colne between Wivenhoe and Rowhedge. The bridge may have been rebuilt inwhen it was held by a carpenter.

In it was in a 'disgraceful state' and the Tendring Hundred Esesx Co. Wivenhoe port was an important part of Colchester port from the 16th century until the late 19th when the river was not navigable for larger ships upstream of Wivenhoe. The Tendring Hundred Railway opened a line from the Hythe to Wivenhoe inrun- ning six passenger trains daily in each direction. Bydespite disputes with the Essex and Brightlingsea Railway, it had extended the single track line to Walton, running three or four trains a day between Colchester and Walton with Sunday services only in summer.

Trains were still running in The Wivenhoe and Brightlingsea Railway opened a line from Wivenhoe to Brightlingsea in ; it was closed in In there was a daily post coach to London, fn. Post went to and from Colchester daily in In telegraph wires connected the railway to the post office.

A Neolithic arrowhead and a bronze spearhead have been found in the parish, and some linear features may indicate prehistoric settlement. In Wivenhoe manor had a recorded popu- lation of 14, presumably heads of households, which increased to 28 by In the rector reported a population of c. In in population Wivenhoe was second only to Great Coggeshall in Lexden hundred, but the rate of increase at that time was well below the national average. Wivenhoe was the fastest growing town in Essex in the following decade, its popu- lation reaching 5, inthe opening rssex Essex University being an important factor.

Wivenhoe was then the fourth sivenhoe populous parish in Colchester borough. Early settlement developed round the quay in the south-west corner of the parish, and the church and manor house just north of it. The rest of the parish contained mainly scattered farms, except for a few houses at Wivenhoe Cross about a mile north of the quay. Apart from the high street which runs northwards along the spur of high ground the pattern of roads is irregular.

West Street may represent an early limit of building above the river foreshore which would then have turned south-eastwards to leave Anchor Hill perhaps once a market-place and most of the ground between the churchyard and wivsnhoe quay above high water. A narrow strip of flatter land, which is probably reclaimed marsh and foreshore, widens to the east and west around the gasworks site and Bath Street.

Surviving houses of the 17th century and earlier are all esseex framed and fairly numer- ous. The valley slopes wivenhoe the churchyard appear to have been densely built up and there was a scatter of early housing along High Street as well as the early houses on the dispersed farm sites amongst the old enclosures. Two medieval open halls have been identified, at Wivenhoe Lodge and High Street, and others may survive beneath the many steep roofs in the vil- lage.

There are also jettied frontages to a number of buildings, including the back wing of Anchor House and the corner of West Street and Anchor Hill, which appear to be 16th century, and Garrison House and the range facing the river to the east of Quay Street which are 17th cent- ury. Those of later date have or had character- istic large triangular dormers above an wivenhoe jetty. The two-bayed wivenheo has a crown-post roof and the service rooms and a staircase were at the south end.

In the 17th century a stack and upper floor were put into the hall and the range was continued southwards by one bay. By the early 19th century it had been divided into several houses and the front was encased in brick. In the middle of the century a new block was built in front wivenhoe the two northern bays.

The other three bays were reunited as one house in the late 20th century. Garrison House was built in the wivenohe century with a long room on the first floor which, with its position adjacent to the churchyard, suggests that it may have had a communal purpose.

The north side has elaborate pargetting to the first floor jetty and similar brackets to a deep eaves above which there was formerly a row of large attic dormers. In the early 18th century two houses dominated the town: Wivenhoe Hall, the manor house on the west side of High Essex, and a new mansion built just south of the Hall by Matthew Martin, M.

Apart from Martin's mansion and another, Wivenhoe Park, built in the north west of the parish infn. Activity picked up again early in the 19th century. The house at the corner of East Street and Wivenhpe Street appears to have a timber frame which has been cased to the front in grey and provided with essex windows and a classical porch whilst the side elevation is in red brick.

The number of houses in the parish increased considerably during the 19th century, mostly south of Wivenhoe Hall. Alma Street wivenhoe built east of the church wivenhoe and Corsellis, had some houses for his tenants built in the s on Anchor Hill near the quay.
