Overview

Hornchurch was once a rural village, though it has now been swallowed up by Greater London. This nostalgic, moving, and deeply personal set of recollections discusses this change—which may be seen in the archive photographs which complement the text—and reveals how the village of the past became the town of today. From World War I, including the local hospitals which cared for the wounded and the pilots who flew from Hornchurch Aerodrome to take part in the Battle of Britain, to memories of life in the Hornchurch of days gone by, Hornchurch Memories will delight locals and visitors alike. Patricia Pound is an award-winning writer who grew up in Hornchurch. She is a trained interviewer with qualifications in local and community history.
