Agriculture has been the main industry in St Osyth for centuries, but at times what is below the ground has been exploited. Clay for bricks for building London. Sand and gravel for roads and buildings across the country. The Creeks and the sea provided an ideal way to transport these heavy, bulky goods but they also provided a living for Sailors, Oystermen and Fishermen.

In the last 100 years Tourism has become an increasingly important part of the local economy and the parish is now home to hundreds of static caravans and lodges providing holiday fun to thousands of people each summer week.
