Basildon The Way We Were


This new DVD presents an entertaining look back at Basildon and the surrounding villages before the New Town.

It takes us back to the days when Vange and Fobbing had thriving wharves; when smugglers unloaded contraband in the misty marshes; when Pitsea was an island; and when malaria was the scourge of Laindon.

It also recalls the impact of two World Wars on the district, and in a special feature on the Plotlands, it explains the reasons for their development and provides a fascinating insight into life in the Plotland communities.

This engaging journey through time is produced exclusively for the Basildon Echo and is narrated by award winning actor, Howard Ellison.
