A really bad winter in Billericay

The subject chosen by Margaret Mills for of this week’s historical feature, concerned Billericay during the winter of 1766, where on the 18th January the town was hit by a blizzard like no other, with snow lying between 6 and 10 feet deep.

Not surprisingly this resulted in the Rochford to London coach becoming totally buried.

Apparently it required the efforts of 30 men over a period of 3 days to clear a path and free the coach.
