THUNDERSLEY and DAWS HEATH
A HISTORY
By Robert Hallmann

 

Local author Robert Hallmann brings to life a much needed new history of Thundersley and Daws Heath.
No one acquainted with South East Essex could be in any doubt that this ancient parish truly deserves this delightful book. It has over 300 illustrations – many rare and never before published – which show how the inhabitants made their livelihood. Maps and records illustrate how community life adapted to successive changes over the centuries.
From farming to motor cycle manufacture, Thundersley people have shown industry and ingenuity. Despite pressure from developers and its proximity to our capital city, the area is fortunate in having conserved its ancient woodlands and commons.
Church life has played an important part in the history of Thundersley and in addition to a comprehensive index, there is an annotated listing of Thundersley rectors, curates and church wardens. This is an essential reference book for local residents or for those who live in distant lands with Thundersley connections.
