My Story

I got involved in local history as part of the Basildon Heritage Project Team in 2007.  

It has been so interesting learning about the local history of Basildon, not so new town!  In my research I have met such interesting characters.  I've had some wonderful feedback from people, as they've leafed through the pages some have been brought back to the time of their childhood.  The photographs evoke memories of smells, and images that time has left behind.

My most recent book 'Lost Basildon' was released in August 2019 by Amberley Publishing.  My first book 'Basildon Through Time' was published in November 2014.  My first local history article was printed in the Essex Life magazine, January 2020 issue.

My other interests are creating art and design and I am a member of a local musical and operetta group.  I also enjoy reading.  As well as my family,  consisting of my husband, two children and three grandchildren, I have four cats.
