Comments: my cousin who lives in western australia found this site by accident and phoned me in great excitement. The first photo on this site is a row of houses. the one closest to the right of photo is where our grandparents alice and charles matheson lived for most of their married life! as very young children we spent many happy hours in rectory road and have fond memories of our time in pitsea and the basildon area.

well done on the work that has gone into putting this site together. i will be a frequent visitor im sure.

Comments: Nearing the end of another year, its 29 years since I left Basildon and I was fortunate enough to visit this year. I lived in Great Spenders, Rising Grove, Somercotes and Alcotes before emigrating to Canada.
I have updated my homepage address, the content is still the same, haven't figured out how to change it.

Comments: Lived in Basildon since 1954. Watched the fields and farms over the years change to tar and concrete. Have marched many carnivals as Drum Major to the Basildon Drum & Trumpet Corps from 1962 to 1972. I have many fond memories of this ever growing town which are prompted more by the old photo's found in the books about Basildon

Comments: I visited Langdon Hills for the first time in 1958 to see sergeant Frank Ballard (and wife Daisy) again. This was my first visit to Great Britain too. Frand stayed in our house in Geleen/NL when we were liberated and over a few decades contacts were maintained. I have forgotten the street, where the couple with their two children Tony and Barbara lived (would like to know it again). Neighbours were Mrs. Poole and Mrs. Sache (if correctly spelled). The late uncle Frank organised trips to Southend-on-Sea and I had the opportunity to go to London to visit the famous organworks of Chiappa Ltd. in Eyre Street Hill. I am remembering Langdon Hills with nice thoughts. Basildon was then to be built, a 'new town'.
