Where is Laindon
I along with many others, as this website proves, remember when Laindon was a place and not just a name or the name given to a district of a large characterless town. Until Laindon became integrated (swallowed up) into Basildon, residents knew where they lived and where the boundaries were. Not that it was important and probably not very precise at that time. My question is: does an actual boundary exist, if so does anybody know just where it is? I guess that it must start and finish somewhere. Whilst not vitally important, it is a subject that intrigues me and as such I should be pleased to learn whatever information anyone can share. My postal address was: Pound Lane, Laindon, Basildon, Essex, this distinguished it from the Pound Lane in Pitsea. I wonder if properties today still use Laindon as part of their address or rely solely upon the postcode. If they do still use it where do they cease to be in Laindon, as surely this must then be the boundary? Waffle over!
