Bringing Your Memories Back to Life


New Pub For Seafront - It took a while to build but the seafront gained a new pub in 1818, The Castle, which no longer exists (demolished in 1924), sat on the current footprint of the Sea Life Centre.  The first licensee was a Thomas Brown.  The positioning of the pub was as close as you could get to the beach ideal for trippers looking for a beanfeast and a bed.

Smallpox - This illness was common until the beginning of the last century.  Nationally a vaccination had been introduced in 1796, but was first adopted locally in Southend and Prittlewell, in 1818.
