Come to South Woodham Ferrers

Check out this brilliant 1981 promotional film advocating the joys of South Woodham Ferrers, posted on YouTube by the Essex Record Office. Featuring an insanely catchy jingle, it's a paean to a "country town" that even Alan Partridge couldn't better… I'll be mentioning it in my talk at the Essex Record Office Open Day on September 14. Click on the link to play. Three miles of creek frontage! We hope we have aroused your interest. A whole new place to be…


  1. "three miles of creek frontage" - well, I think that's the first time I've ever seen that phrase!
