Grays Thurrock, usually known simply as Grays, is the centre of the borough of Thurrock, lying beside the Thames 34 km. east of London.

It was formerly a small port, with chalk quarries, brickworks, and a brewery. Those occupations declined after WWI.

The ancient parish is bounded north and west by Stifford and east by Little Thurrock.

Local sites of interest include the Thurrock History Museum, and Grays Beach.

From the top of the Derby Road Bridge in Grays one can look down to Grays Beach children’s playground and the River Thames.

Grays Beach is the site of the local landmark The Gull, a lightship built in 1860, which has lain on the foreshore for decades and is now in a serious state of dilapidation. The light from The Gull has been removed, restored and installed on the foreshore.
