SE Essex 1884 - England Sheet 258
This folded map which measures approximately 24" x 18" when unfolded is produced by Alan Godfrey and covers an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles. It shows railways, roads and canals, and gives a broad view of a wider area. It also includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village.
This map covers the area of south Essex from Corringham eastward to Shoeburyness, northward to the River Crouch. The towns on it are Southend and Rochford but it also includes Basildon which would later be developed into a significant town. On the reverse is a large scale map of Battlesbridge with a short directory. On the Thames estuary Thames Haven and Canvey Island are shown before later development.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given to those for which we have published detailed maps.
