Hello! Excellent site. I moved to the states in '85 when I was 21. Growing up in Barking was great fun. Barking park, jumping on and off buses. Playing in the bombsite at the end of the street. Sitting outside a pub waiting for your dad and getting lemonade and a bag of crisps. Vicarage fields fireworks on Guye Fawlkes night. Saturday morning pictures at the Odean.
Went back a couple of years ago and wanted to cry.
Thanks for the memories.
Sorry, I haven't kept up!
Can anyone (yes please Mr Editor) help with anymore info of the Twyford's
of Dagenham circa 1730/40's.
Hope you can.
Would love to speak to you about the history of the area, could you drop me an email to discuss!
Fantastic information about a beautiful town. Thanks for putting this together!

Great website. I have learned so much this morning! Thanks
I am working on the 1950 census of distribution and note that Dagenham then was recorded with 9 fish and chip shops taking between them £50,000
This meant that their average size placed the town second in a national listing of shops by sales size.
Have you or any of readers rany source which would suggest who operated such large shops
