Having crossed the A127 we can continue our journey leaving the Fortune Service Station on our right. As we move up the High Road we come across another building with a history on our right.
The next building covering up part of the history is Carpet Warehouse also on our right
The next of our buildings of interest is on our Left and is a pair of semidetached houses that have been part of the High Rd for many years
Moving on from the Villa’s we switch over to the over side of the road again and we would have come across the British Legion Hall next to Laindon High Road School. The War Memorial stood in a prominent position in front of the Hall facing the High Road. The Hall itself was built in the early 1920s until it was sold and demolished in 1975. The Memorial then languished in a store house near Pitsea tip, until it was rescued and relocated to its current position in front of Laindon Shopping centre. Journey will continue in the near future.
Next we come to the newest addition to the changing landscape of the High Road and still very controversial.
as soon as I can find out where to put the ignition key!
