Billericay, occupied since the Bronze and Iron Ages, is an established parish in the Basildon borough of Essex. It is also part of the London Basin and received its charter in the thirteenth century. Its most notable historical episode took place in 1381 when Richard II’s soldiers defeated Essex rebels at Norsey Wood, which ended the Peasants’ Revolt. The coming of the railway in 1889 had a major impact on Billericay, providing great links to London and Southend-on-Sea.

In Billericay & Around Through Time, author Kate J. Cole invites the reader on a captivating photographic journey of old and new. The book showcases many historical places, features, open spaces, aspects of industry and everyday life in Billericay and the surrounding area.
