Being Aware of History
Our monthly review articles are aimed at raising our awareness of the town that is Rochford. Sometimes in expensive restaurants, shortly after you have sat down, a waiter may bring you a ‘little something with the compliments of the chef’. The little something is to raise your interest in what may follow. This month’s Review, we hope, is rather like that!
Clearing out some old papers recently, we came across the following which is the nearest thing we can find to a treasure map. We reproduce it exactly in the form we found it and leave it to those who are interested in these things (you?) to decipher it and to check its accuracy. Below the map we reproduce a little of the text that came with it. If it can stir your interest in what we have here in Rochford, we have achieved our goal for this month.
