Ye Olde Village of Hornchurch

Author: Charles Thomas Perfect
ISBN: 0 86025 540 9


Originally published in 1917 this history of a village renowned for its leather industry in the Middle Ages ranges from the earliest times to the Great War when Grey Towers was a hospital for the New Zealand forces. At the time of the establishment of the Liberty of Havering St Andrews was the mother church for the area and so the story extends far beyond the present parish boundaries. Some of the photographs of contemporary Hornchurch are showing their age, but this is a vibrant record of a thriving town.

160 pages, 38 photographs, 5 line drawings, tables
