Auction of land on Chapel Road, 1902


In February 1902, Ernest J. Gale issued a plan and description of property on Chapel Street (nowadays Chapel Road) and the High Street, for sale by auction.

I need to do more research but Stebbings may have bought one or more of these plots for their Chapel Road yard and a family home

Of interest,

  • Lot 6 is the site of what is now the war memorial.
  • Lot 5 is described as including an oyster pit and today shellfish continue to be sold from the site, from The Oyster Pit seafood shop (formerly Dengie Shellfish).
