The town of Wickford is situated in a meander of the River Crouch, just north of Basildon in south Essex. Its name is Saxon in origin and means 'a sheep farm on a river crossing'. This detailed history traces Wickford's fortunes from its humble beginnings as a tiny hamlet beset by regular flooding and poverty, to the bustling commuter town of today.
