Mistley is a large village and civil parish in the Tendring district of northeast Essex. It is around 11 miles northeast of Colchestermarker and is east of, and almost contiguous with Manningtreemarker. The parish consists of Mistley and New Mistley both lying beside the Stour Estuary and Mistley Heath a kilometre to the south. It is served by Mistley railway stationmarker on the Mayflower Line.

In a somewhat contradictory fashion, the map openly marks a Secret Bunker. This was built in 1951 as one of five Cold War control rooms in Essex. It was open as a museum for a few years but closed in 2002.

Mistley is the village where Mathew Hopkins, the Witchfinder General, was most active He stayed in the Thorn Hotel, on Mistley High Street.

The village is home to Mistley Cricket Club which plays its home games in New Road, next to the church.

On 17 September 2008, amid chaotic scenes of public protest, a 2-metre high, 130-metre long fence was erected across the historic public quay at Mistley, Essex. It is designed to block access to and from the River Stour and ends 500 years of free access to the water.

Landowner Michael Parker of Trent Wharfage has willfully disregarded the public's established rights to access the quay and the quayside, to moor boats here, swim, fish, and feed Mistley's famous swans.

Action group FREE THE QUAY aims to have the fence legally removed, and to preserve Mistley Quay for the continued enjoyment of all.
