11th October - 11.00 to 4.00
Friday 11th Oct saw the Tilbury Riverside Project’s Riverside Ramble at the Tilbury Riverside Arts & Activity Centre, Ferry Road. There was a guided walk along the Thames in the morning, but the afternoon walk had to be cancelled due to bad weather. There was a showing of the film The Story Behind the Road and talks on the Windmills of Essex and the Chadwell Parish Boundary. We were delighted to have archive stands from Benfleet and Laindon as well as the Tilbury and Chadwell memories. Unfortunately, the weather prevented the old railway ticket office being open for viewing, but George Watts gave us a talk on the Riverside Station instead.
