West Thurrock is a traditional Church of England parish and town in Thurrock, Essex, England, located 17.5 miles east south east of Charing Cross, London.

Some West Thurrock history

Huge Mammoths once grazed in the Thurrock area and archaeologists recently unearthed the remains of a jungle cat. Humans have lived in the West Thurrock since prehistoric times and the land has been farmed by the Romans and Anglo-Saxons. Thurrock has numerous archaeological sites including the major excavation at Mucking.

Thurrock is a Saxon name meaning "the bottom of a ship". West Thurrock is one of three "Thurrocks", the others being Little Thurrock and Grays Thurrock.

Horndon-on-the-Hill was the site of an 11th century mint as well as the 15th century woolmarket which gives an indication of the areas wealth during the 15th century. The narrowing of the river where Tilbury now stands meant it was important in the defence of London, and Henry VIII built three blockhouses, two on the Tilbury side and another on the Gravesend side of the river, following the end of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon.

Lodge Lane in the Grays district of Thurrock holds historical significance as being the ancient site of the Coronation of Anglo Saxon King Saberht in 604. The exact site can not be confirmed but it is believed to be between Connaught Avenue and Victoria Avenue on the North Side of Lodge Lane. Such is the significance of this site post marks and township can still be legally represented as North East Windsor.

In 1381, villagers from Fobbing, Mucking and Stanford-le-Hope instigated the Peasants Revolt when they were called to Brentwood to pay the poll tax. When they refused to pay, a riot ensued which was the catalyst for a mass protest across Essex and Kent.

Later, in 1588 Elizabeth I addressed her troops not far from the Tilbury blockhouse as the Spanish Armada sailed up the English Channel. Between 1670 and 1682, the Tilbury blockhouse was substantially rebuilt into a much larger fortification and Coalhouse Fort was built further down river, close to the second blockhouse. The importance of the forts in defending the country continued through Napoleonic times and into the two world wars. The land where Tilbury now stands was farmland and marsh grazing until the building of the docks in the 1890s. Thurrock includes the Bata village, built for workers of the shoe company in 1933. Eight homes and the factory remain listed.

Historically, West Thurrock was renowned for mineral extraction, including clay, aggregates and notably the digging of huge amounts of chalk for use in the former cement industries. When chalk extraction ceased one of the disused pits was redeveloped as Lakeside Shopping Centre. A number of former pits have been used to form the Chafford Gorges Nature Reserve, managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust.

Captain Kidd and West Thurrock

The body of Captain Kidd was displayed in Thurrock. He had been convicted of piracy and hanged on 23 May 1701, at Execution Dock, Wapping. He had to be hanged twice. On the first attempt, the hangmans rope broke and Kidd survived. Although some in the crowd called for Kidds release, claiming the breaking of the rope was a sign from God, Kidd was hanged again minutes later, and died. His body was gibbeted over the River Thames at Tilbury Point as a warning to future pirates for a number of years years.

Some sources give the location where his body was exhibited as Tilbury Ness, but this may be an alternative name for the same place. There is some uncertainty as to whether his body was displayed at what is now called Coalhouse Point or at a site a few hundred yards up stream, close to the present Tilbury Docks.
