Bulphan is a village in the borough of Thurrock in the East of England and one of the traditional (Church of England) parishes in Thurrock. It is pronounced 'Bull-ven' though newcomers often mispronounce it as 'Bul-fan'.

Bulphan forms part of the Orsett ward of Thurrock Council, and is part of the South Basildon and East Thurrock parliamentary constituency. It is located 21 miles (34 km) east north-east of Charing Cross in London. The Upminster post town forms a long, thin protrusion eastwards over the M25 motorway and the Greater London boundary in order to include the village.

St Mary the Virgin church

The main features of Bulphan are the Bulphan Village Hall and Park, St Mary The Virgin Church, the Village Shop and Bulphan Church Of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School. The church is a grade I listed building.[1]

Bulphan is fairly isolated and only has three bus services: the 265, which runs up to twice per day, Monday to Saturday, between Brentwood and Lakeside Shopping Centre; the 564 to Grays (5 times per day, Monday to Saturday) and the 565 to Brentwood Station via West Horndon (6 times per day, Monday to Saturday). School buses also connect Bulphan with Palmers College in Grays, and the 269 service stops on the A128 en route to Thurrock College. The nearest railway station is three miles away.
