The local post office and convenience store are within 1.5 miles and the nearest pub is about a mile away. Althorne is situated in the heart of the Dengie peninsula, a largely agricultural area positioned between the Blackwater estuary and river Crouch. With its vast coastline the area is very popular for sailing and other water sports especially in the sailing towns of Burnham on Crouch (5 miles) and the popular market town of Maldon (9 miles).
