The pub history sites are regularly updated by Stephen Harris and kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals on a daily basis; and anyone is welcome to contribute. We are not a society, but a random group of people with similar interests in mapping the usage of old buildings, public houses, taverns, hotels and Inns through time. Why not join us, there is no cost in getting involved, and any contribution to pub history is welcome. To contact the pubs history site, please email deadpubs<

I know Dagenham well, having spent considerable time there in my first job, with British telecom, well - it was a short experience! The Ford car plant was then a major work provider for many, I am not so sure it is now.
Since starting Family History , I discovered one important part of my family left fairly prosperous farms, in the Kelvedon Hatch / Doddinghurst area, and ended as general traders in Whalebone Lane, Becontree Heath; before merging with my Suffolk Wildings in Romford.
