The Local History Group concentrates on South East Essex. Topics that members have researched recently include 'Islands around Essex' : 'Iconic Buildings of Southend' : and 'The Coming of the Railways'. We have had some very interesting speakers and from time to time we visit places of interest. The most recent outing was to Rochford Church and Rochford Hall. We meet in the small hall at St.Aidan's Church on the 3rd Friday of each month at 2.30.
