Welcome to the Thurrock Local History Society, Founded 1952
|The society was very sad to learn of the
death of our Patron and long-term supporter,
Randal Bingley, on 11th August.
We also lost Brian Burton, during the Christmas break and a memorial bench to Brian was unveiled on 31st August at Coalhouse Fort. A fuller appreciation of Brian's contribution to the local history of Thurrock and beyond will appear shortly.
We have re-published Randal Bingley's article entitled Daniel Defoe - his trail uncovered
Barry Barns would like to know What happened in Kynoch Town in 1916 and who was Elizabeth Lawler?
We have an article on the light ship "Gull"
The latest edition of our journal - Panorama - is now available
We wish to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War by publishing information about Thurrock men and women who participated.
The latest brief historical guide to Thurrock parishes is Mucking
Thurrock Local History Society is supporting the campaign to preserve The Dell
There is a short account of The Lakeside Hammers
Can you help?
We got an answer to the question whether anyone could tell us about the Thurrock Motor Club?
