Timberlog Lane in its original form was one of the
longest roads in pre-new town Basildon being a continuation of Nevendon Road from a junction with Burnt Mills Road
to the High Road/London Road junction at Vange.
Its length was shortened in the 1960s to form a new junction with
Clay Hill Road, and the section from the new junction to the Barge was subsequently renamed Clay Hill Road in 1964. Later
in the 1960s the section between Nevendon Road and Broadmayne which ran in front of Craylands senior school was renamed
Craylands. The original junction with Broadmayne was later closed off and realigned.
Another small section remains
as an access road to Barstable School (now the Lower Academy), with this being renamed Timberlog Close when a new straight
section to a new permanent junction with Broadmayne was constructed. It was once designated route B1419.
