South Green

This wonderful Postcard of The Village Smithy at South Green is in my collection.

I wonder where the Smithy had his Forge.

  • A bit further west where the old folks home is. I spotted it on a large scale old OS map subsequent to posting but thanks anyway.

  • I think the Smithy was next door to Goodey’s Stores on the Southend Road. It appears in Roger Green’s ‘Billericay, An Historical Tour in Pictures’ which was published in 1997.
    It was situated on the left hand side (going east) almost opposite the village green roughly where the petrol station now is.
