Thurrock is on the north bank of the river Thames, about 25 miles east of London. The Thurrock Local History Society covers the area included within the modern unitary authority of Thurrock - roughly the area in the map below. Until Thurrock became a unitary authority, it was in Essex.

The (traditional) Church of England parishes within our area are Aveley, Bulphan, Chadwell (St Mary), Corringham, East Tilbury, Fobbing, Grays Thurrock, Horndon, Langdon Hills, Little Thurrock, Mucking, Orsett, South Ockendon, Stanford-le-Hope, Stifford, West Thurrock and West Tilbury.
