Voices of North and South OckendoneBook - 2014
Voices of North and South Ockendon reveals the social history of both North and South Ockendon, the latter created in the 1960s when the London County Council purchased the old Belhus estate. This warm and nostalgic collection reveals some sometimes surprising truths about what life was like at that time, as the local inhabitants faced circumstances that were sometimes difficult, particularly as jobs and buildings were removed to make way for families in need of homes, with courage and good humor. Many of those newcomers have been interviewed for this collection, revealing what it was like to grow up in the area. North Ockendon, meanwhile, has a history all of its own, and is not neglected in this carefully selected range of memories, which will delight residents and visitors alike.
