    Hello Lynda

    you don't say which Lynda you there were many that I knew at Shoeburyness High during the 60's I was in Mr Hounsells class but am not sure if it was 63 / 64.

    I had Doud Hounsell as my Form Teacher in 1963 and English teacher. I also remember Miss. Pilcher, Mr O'Donnell who was a friend of my dad's, so woe betide me if I didn't do well, Miss Lark was Nursing and Nurse McGrath was Mothercraft. Mrs.Bacon was Domestic science,Drama Mrs.Heap and Mr Merlin was art.
    I left Shoebury for Australia in 1967 and still live here.

caravan site in shoeburyness in 60s/70s by karen35 (Member 10201668) on 25-Jan-2007
This is a long shot I know but I used to go on holiday with my grandparents in the 60s and up till 1973. They had a caravan (I'm quite sure it was a static one) at a caravan site in shoeburyness. I cant remember the name of the site, but it had a long high wall that went down the side of the site, which led down to the beach.There was a parade of shops fairly nearby.
It was closed and houses wer... more >>

    HI Karen. I used to live in Shoeburyness up until 1970. I don't know if this is the the one your looking for, but there was one called East Beach caravan park. Hope this is some help to you. Brian

    As well as the caravan park at East Beach I think the caravan park you may well be thinking of used behind the Shore House. It was situated on the land between The Shore House pub and St Andrews church in Church Road. I moved to Shoebury in 1964 and back then the caravan park occupied a large plot of land and was mainly full of static caravans, I think they were used as holiday homes. Back then th... more >>

    My house was built in about 1978 between st andrews church and the shore house and i believe my mum said it was a caravan site or fields beforehand.

    wow thats brilliant, thank you so much to you all for your information. I hopefully will get there sometime and have a look round the area. I spent a lot of happy years there with my grandad and mum. I spent my last holiday with my mum there before she passed away in May 1973 and a year or so after that, my grandad re-sited the caravan to burnham on crouch as the memories were too much for him an... more >>

  • Re: caravan site in shoeburyness in 60s/70s by Alan Perry (Member 10255028) on 30-Nov-2010
    The caravan site near Shoebury Common which is now a housing estate was owned by Capt H R Townsend. My parents started camping there before WW2 and continued to do so afterward. At first it was under canvas but in the late 50s they bought a caravan. I spent many weekends there from 1948 until 1965.

Moving to Shoebury? by Saila (Member 10189021) on 12-Jul-2006
I live in the US and my partner is currently residing in Shoebury. He is determined to move here permanently, and I have yet to go visit the area. I'm not sure whether to make the international move there or remain where I am. For everyone that lives there what can you say about Shoeburyness? or Essex/England in general? Everyone's experience varies, but I would respect some input.

Thankyou,
Saila.

Shoeburyness by Tony Paton (Member 10173260) on 2-Jan-2006
What is Shoeburyness?
Since Shoeburyness was brought to my attention in a TV programme featuring some ramblings by Janet Street Porter, I have often wondered what Shoeburyness is like? If happiness is a noun formed from the adjective "happy", can "shoebury" be an adjective too? What if anythiing does "shoebury" have to do with burying shoes? I really like the name "Shoeburyness" but can anyone su... more >>
