Comments: I enjoyed reading the history having been born and lived at Laindon for nearly 18 years when I moved to Norfolk with my parents in 1964. Disappointed not to see more pics of the OLD Laindon as I knew it. I have the book by Peter Lucas and won't let anybody borrow it. Peter gave it to me when my Dad and I met him outside the now sadly demolished 'Laindon Hotel' where we have many memories of and not just for the beer. Cheers to all who remember me, and please get in touch. I still visit the place from time to time, so it would be nice to meet up and reminise. I fink thas ow its spelt. Thanks.

Comments: Found site by accident, have relations still in Popes Crescent and Burns Avenue area of Pitsea. My mum in law from Pitsea has seen this site and says she recognises some of the names on the guestbook from many years ago and lots of the Pitsea and Vange buildings now long gone. We think she is on one of the photos of Pitsea Primary School 1961 holding my husband as a baby and our old family bungalow is in the background.

Comments: Very interesting site. I was born and bred in Laindon and left for Australia in 1966. The 1949 map is how I remember Laindon, and crossing Blue House Farm to attend Markhams Chase Primary.
Still return to see family and friends.
