Billericay
The following is a list of other books and publications that might be of interest to those seeking information on local history around Basildon. Please note, the list is far from comprehensive and even some of these titles are becoming scarce but can serve as a guide to what is available.
As with the Basildon books, these titles are well written, often by local authors with factual information and stories recounting the 'old days'.
Contained along with the text are a wealth of old photographs and picture postcards.
