This is a spin-off from my article ‘Photo Album’ about Laindon’s postmen and women.
When somebody mentioned Beatrice Road in a comment, the subject began to drift off in a tangent. Eventually there were around thirty entries about the area and the families who had lived there. Beatrice Road no longer exists but the name has been retained for a footpath in the same area.
As this subject is very interesting in its own right and still receives occasional comments, I decided it really deserved a separate heading of its own. I therefore enlisted the help of the editorial team, to extract the appropriate comments and place them here, complete with map of the area and photograph of ‘Beatrice Path’.
