Facts about Brightlingsea

The Cinque Port Liberty

The Cinque Ports were a confederation of the five most important ports on the coast of the English Channel. They had obligations to provide ships and men to fight for the king in time of war but were compensated by lucrative exemptions from taxation. All of the Cinque Ports acquired “Limbs” or subsidiary ports that would ease the burden of their wartime obligations and share the beneifits of their privileges. Brightlingsea became a Limb of the Head Port of Sandwich, and is the only community outside Kent and Sussex which has any connection with the Confederation of the Cinque Ports.

The Battles of Brightlingsea

In 1984 Brightlingsea Wharf was used to import coal during the Miners’ Strike, and up to a dozen ships could be seen out in the river waiting to unload at Wivenhoe.

Brightlingsea port came to national prominence again in the 1990s with an attempt to use the port again for a controversial cargo. Dubbed the “Battle of Brightlingsea” it comprised a series of protests against the live export of animals from the town for slaughter in mainland Europe. Many people believed that the conditions in which the animals were exported were cruel and inhumane.
