April 2013 Update - London Hill

This month we thought we would show you some pictures  of London Hill


Until the coming of the railway in 1889 London Hill was the major road into Rayleigh. It was part of the main turnpike road from Aldgate in London to Rochford and a stagecoach route.

In bad weather it was common for passengers to have to get out of their stagecoach and walk up as the road

was too muddy and slippery for the horses to pull the coach up fully laden.
