It lies within the London Basin, has a population of around 36,338 – 2011 census, and constitutes acommuter town 28 miles (45 km) east of central London.

History

 

Some of the earliest records of human occupation of Billericay are the burial mounds in Norsey Wood: evidence of occupation in the Bronze and Iron Ages. Evidence of Roman occupation has been found at a number of locations in the town and there may have been a small cavalry fort at Blunts Wall.

The Saxons did not settle in the centre of Billericay. They established themselves two miles south, at Great Burstead. In the late 10th century it was known as 'Burhstede'. Billericay was not mentioned in the Domesday Book, as it lay within Great Burstead. At this time the parish church for Billericay was at Great Burstead.

 

 

Origin of the Name

 

The origin of most English place-names can be ascertained with a fair degree of confidence, but Billericay – previously Billerica, is a well-known exception to this.

The town of Billericay was created some time in the 13th century and our first record of the town is the spelling Byllyrica recorded in 1291. The town was one of many founded in that period and was established in an already densely populated rural landscape – the town of Billericay being founded within the manor and parish of Great Burstead. There are many suggestions for the origin of the place name including:

• Villa Erica (Heather Villa), suggesting a Romano-British origin.

• From a medieval Latin word, bellerÄ«ca, meaning 'dyehouse or tanhouse'.

• A name based on Billers, billers is a traditional name for watercress and is the origin of the place name Bilbrook in Somerset. The High Street site is close to many springs which would make a good place to grow watercress, indeed watercress was farmed in Billericay springs during the 20th century.

 

 

Geography[edit]

Billericay is within the London Basin and lies on a mixture of London clayClaygate Beds and Bagshot Beds. Near the High Street, there is a change in soil type from sandy to clay, which gives rise to local underground springs. Open spaces include Norsey Wood, Mill Meadows Nature Reserve, Queen's Park Country Park, Sun Corner, Lake Meadows, Hanningfield Reservoir and South Green. Billericay contains Billericay SchoolMayflower High School and St John's School.

 

 

Transport

 

Billericay is a part of the London commuter belt..It is served by Billericay railway station on the Greater Anglia route from Liverpool Street station, in the City of London, to Southend. The station connects to local bus routes.

Billericay is close to two primary routes: the A12 to the north and the A127 in the south. The A176 provides a road link to Basildon to the south of Billericay, as well as to the A127. The only secondary road in the town, the B1007, passes from just south of the town centre as Laindon Road, meets the A129 at Sun Corner and then continues northwards as Billericay's High Street and then Stock Road. It continues north to the county town of Chelmsford. Along its route is the village of Stock and an interchange to the A12. The town is a destination on the A129, linking it to the neighbouring towns of Brentwood and Wickford.
