Jaywick Local History Society


Jaywick Local History Society is a friendly local history group with members sharing a common interest in the history of Jaywick and the local area. We enjoy finding out about the history of our seaside village, and sharing the information we find.

We hold meetings every other month with talks by expert speakers, and run special events and occasional outings. We would love for you to join us! Read more About us.

Jaywick is a fascinating village with an interesting 90 year history. Originally conceived as an upmarket holiday village in the 1920’s where people would drive from London on a Friday evening, enjoying golf, tennis, swimming, putting and possibly dancing and then drive back refreshed and ready for a week’s work.
