Caption for Billericay, Catholic Church C1955

West Horndon is a planned village dating only from the 1940s. Before that, it had been a sparsely-inhabited parish, whose medieval church had collapsed by the early 18th century. The railway station—formerly called East Horndon—stood in the middle of nowhere when it was first built in 1886; the Railway Hotel was previously a coaching inn. West Horndon is now a compact settlement with a small industrial estate, and some good footpaths leading to Bulphan Fen.

Personally, I did not think the modernisation work was in keeping with the original architecture.

I distincly remember the wrought iron staircase leading ...Read full memory

Chantry Cafe & Billericay Secondary School

I had a weekend job at the Chantry with my friend Pat Barker. I visited Billericay many years ago and the cafe had long since gone. I also have fond memories of my secondary school - Norsey House (blue) Stockwell (green) Chantry (Red) and my memory escapes me regarding Yellow House. I believe the ...Read full memory
