Wynford Grant as a boy

This video has some footage of Billericay Station when the alterations were being done in the 1961.

The subject of the film is Wynford Grant who was 14 years old at the time. He had set up the Billericay Observer newspaper which he sold for 1½d (just over 0.5p in today’s money). The paper was in its third year of publication at this time and had a circulation of 500 copies.

Have you got any video footage of Billericay?
