  • I have a little information about Orchard House, 30 Runwell Road, Wickford, Essex. I lived there with my family from c.1962 until 1968 when it was bought by the local council and demolished due to a road scheme. The site of the house is now under a roundabout (viewable in Google street view).

  • My paternal grandmother Rhoda, (widow) married a James Birch who was from Wickford. In 1949 James’ mother Sarah Jane Birch died, her address at that time was “Phoebe”, Runwell Estate, Runwell Road. I was wondering if anyone has any info or pictures of the Estate, or perhaps memories of the Birch family. Thank you. Sylvia
