Jaywick Local History Society


We are a friendly group interested in the history of Jaywick and the local community. Knowledge of the history of where we live can be fascinating, so we’ve set about collecting as much information as possible about our little seaside village of Jaywick and the surrounding areas.

Some of our successes to-date have been hosting the book launch of The 1953 Essex Flood Disaster, to which many of our members contributed, and being involved with many local community events.

We are committed to sharing the information we find with our members and the wider community, and we’re always open to ideas to help spread good information about Jaywick, in documenting the past and for Jaywick’s future.
