    A shingle beach (Shingle Head Point - is that the point adjacent Tollesbury Fleet) sounds fine, as does the East Mersea option. I'd forgotten about the beach at Mersea Stone. I've seen boats anchored there too - does anyone know what the holding's like for an overnight stay? Or should we anchor in Pyefleet (which I have done several times before but a good few years ago)?
    As always, the ECF has a wealth of knowledge - many thanks all.
    I’d suggest anchoring or picking up a visitors buoy at the mouth of Pyefleet; there is good landing at the seaward end.

    So, in the end we went from Shotley to Mersea Stone. We anchored just off the beach and used the tender to get ashore for a BBQ. Apart from being somewhat chilly as the westerly breeze became northerly it was ideal. Went for a pleasant Sunday morning stroll around Cudmore park then a good sail back up the wallet.
    All in all a good weekend.

    Thanks to all for the sound advice. ECF at its best ....
