Wickford is a town in the south of the county of Essex, with a population of more than 32,500. Located approximately 30 miles east of London, it falls within the District of Basildon along with Basildon, Billericay, Laindon and Pitsea.

It has become a commuter town, serving the City of London through its direct connection to Liverpool Street station through the Southend Victoria line, on which a train to London takes approximately forty minutes. The town can also be easily reached via the road network by the A127 between London and Southend-on-Sea or by the A130 from Chelmsford.

Wickford is a fairly small town with a main high street including a range of shops. A swimming pool, a library, an open air market and a community centre are also within the vicinity of the town centre.

Some Wickford history

Wickford has a rich history, going back over at least two thousand years. There is evidence that Wickford itself was inhabited in prehistoric times probably by a tribe of Britons called Trinovantes. There was a Roman military marching camp on the Beauchamps Farm site, which was succeeded by a Roman villa. This is now the site of Beauchamps High School. This area on higher ground was the historic core of Wickford, the site of the manor house and the parish church of St Catherines. Over time the commercial centre of Wickford has moved to the west, towards the modern High Street on the other side of the River Crouch.

The place name Wickford is first attested in a Saxon charter of 995, where it appears as Wicford. It appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Wincfort. The name means ford by a wych elm or ford by a dairy farm.

Before the 20th century Wickford was an agricultural village. At the time of the Domesday Survey, six land holders were recorded. Historically there have been only two considerable estates in Wickford, the manor of Wickford Hall and the manor of Stilemans. Robert Wikeford or de Wickford, who lived from 1330-90 and was the Archbishop of Dublin, was born in Wickford, and his family are thought to have been Lords of the Manor of Wickford Hall.

The village of Wickford on Rhode Island in the United States of America, is believed to have been named after Wickford in Essex.

Wickford was also the English birthplace of Elizabeth Reade, the second wife of John Winthrop the Younger, Governor of Connecticut, and a step-daughter of Hugh Peter, a prominent supporter of the Parliamentary cause during the English Civil War.

Second World War in Wickford

During the Second World War the edge of Wickford was hit by a German doodlebug, the common nickname for the V1 flying bomb, and on 6 December 1944 the newer, more powerful V2 rocket fell in Branksome Avenue, about a mile west of the town centre. Around the town, in amongst the hedgerows and fields, there are numerous pillboxes constructed as a part of British anti invasion preparations, fortunately no such invasion ever occured.

In 1958 Wickford town centre was affected by a flood which made national news headlines. The most striking image of the flood was a double decker bus, left stranded at Halls Corner overnight, partly submerged by the floodwater. A second flood in 1960 meant changes to the course of the River Crouch were made. This included turning the river into a concrete channel through the centre of Wickford, although this may be removed in the coming years due to major improvements and building works.
