Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices.
Leigh-on-Sea, also referred to as Leigh, is a civil parish in Essex, England. It is part of Southend-on-Sea for administrative purposes becoming a civil parish in 1996, with its own town council. The only parish within Southend-on-Sea, its population was recorded in the 2001 census at 20,737.
Archaeological finds of pottery and coins from Romano-British era in the locality suggest early settlement. From at least the Saxon period a hilltop clearing amidst the woodland that covered much of the surrounding area of Essex came to be known as Leigh.
A place of minor economic importance at the time of the Norman Conquest, a reference to Leigh appears in the Domesday Book survey of 1086. Ley is a place name element found also in the nearby towns and villages of Hadleigh, Rayleigh, Hockley, and Thundersley.
From the late Middle Ages onwards, Leigh evolved from a rustic backwater through eras of increased and diminished maritime trade to form, by the early twentieth century, the westernmost suburb of the borough of Southend-on-Sea.
Beyond the fishing and trading settlement on the shore of the Thames Estuary, a number of farms including Leigh Heath Farm, Leigh Park Farm, Chapmans, Belfairs Farm, Gowles, Picketts, Owls Hall Farm, Wood Farm, Elm Farm, Plastow and Leigh Hall Farm existed.
St Clements Church was rebuilt in the late 15th century or early 16th century, although the list of rectors dates back 1248. The fabric of the church is of Kentish ragstone and flint rubble, with a Tudor porch constructed of red brick. The mediaeval structure of the church was added to and altered during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The chancel was extended at the east end in 1872, and there were a number of alterations made in 1913 and 1919. The tower at the west end was a prominent landmark for shipping on the Thames Estuary, and the building contains a good selection of stained glass dating from between the 18th and 20th centuries. The building is Grade II listed by Historic England, and a key factor for this rating was the sympathetic nature of the 19th and 20th century additions.
Leigh Hall, a medieval manor house demolished in the early 20th century, was once situated near the ancient eastern manorial boundary of Leigh and Prittlewell. The house and a trackway leading from it to a church on a nearby clifftop pre-dated the centre of modern day Leigh-on-Sea and its primary commercial thoroughfare Broadway.
