Benfleet first entered the history book as the site of the Battle of Benfleet of AD 893, a decisive battle in the ongoing Saxon /Viking wars that ravaged England for nearly 300 years. However, there is much more, as Bygone Benfleet charts the areas development from what was a bustling medieval timber port through to Benfleet’s rapid expansion in the 21st century.
The book will fascinate those with little or no knowledge of pre-war Benfleet and the book is a significant contribution to Essex History.
