Om boka

Conveniently situated around 30 miles East of London, Billericay is now known as a vibrant commuter town. However, the town is also rich in history, with burial mounds attesting to human occupation since the Bronze Age. The final battle of the Peasants' Revolt took place between Richard II and Essex rebels in 1381, and almost three centuries later the Pilgrim Fathers met in Billericay before setting sail on the Mayflower. Several stunning examples of Georgian buildings still stand along the historic High Street, attesting to the town's fascinating past. In Billericay Through Time, author David C. Rayment leads the reader on a nostalgic journey through the town's past and present. Using both old and new photographs, he tells the story of how Billericay has grown through the ages, covering key events such as the Zeppelin crash of 1916 and the coming of the railways. Billericay Through Time is essential reading for both interested newcomers and longstanding residents of this proud Essex town.
