Thurrock Local History Society: Summer Report

THIS summer, members and friends enjoyed several excursions including the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, near Cambridge, Lullingstone Roman Villa and 500-year-old Knole House in Kent, early home of Vita Sackville-West, and finally Brooklands Motoring and Aviation Museum in Surrey.

The society was represented at the Horndon Feast and Fair and the Orsett Show, where they were sited in the heritage marquee, funded by the Port of Tilbury as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

This project was organised by the Heritage Forum and Thurrock Museum. As well as selling the usual local history journals, these events presented an opportunity to sell the society’s latest publications, brief guides to some of Thurrock’s parishes, Chadwell, Horndon and Orsett, which will eventually form a complete set of all the local parishes.
