If you click on `Childhood memories of Bowers Gifford, North Benfleet and Pitsea`,(under `Basildon Stories` on this webb site) you will read my memories of North Benfleet and Bowers Gifford, and also of St Margarets School. You must have been at this School when I was there from 1949-54.
Also a good friend of mine Peter Watts, has written WW2 stories of the area.I hope you find these memories/stories of the area interesting. Kind Regards. John Wernham.
