Throughout history, West Essex has been home to many of Britain’s high achievers in the arts, sport, business, banking and in politics. The area stretching from north-east London to Chipping Ongar has a wealth of fine historic buildings, a rich cultural and artistic heritage and more than its fair share of celebrities.

West Essex Past & Present is beautifully written, produced and illustrated with a number of great works of art, fine colour photography and some rarely-seen antiquarian items, many of them from the author’s own collection.
