A bit about Billericay & Brentwood
Billericay is a town and civil parish in the Borough of Basildon with a population of 34, 274 (2011 Census).
The town was first recorded as ‘Byllyrica” in 1291 and the town’s most notable historical event was the Battle of Billericay during the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381.
Billericay is served by a community radio station, Phoenix FM, based in Brentwood and the town is also the popular setting of former BBC sitcom Gavin & Stacey.
The town has five secondary schools, Mayflower High, Ramsden Hall Academy, St John’s School and The Billericay School. Notable alumni include Britain’s Got Talent winner Diversity who attended Mayflower and British model David Gandy and comedian Lee Evans who were educated at The Billericay School.
There are some major sporting clubs in the town including Billericay Football Club, Rugby Club, Mayflower Archers and Billericay Striders Running Club.
Brentwood is a town in the Borough of Brentwood with a population of 54,885 (2017 Census).
The name of the town was assumed by residents in the 1700s to derive from a combination of the words “burnt” and “wood”. During the Peasant’s Revolt of 1381, Brentwood was the meeting place for some of the instigators, such as John Ball and Jack Straw, apparently meeting regularly in local pubs and inns.
One former pub, The White Hart is actually now a nightclub called Sugar Hut showing little signs of its original historic site. On the edge of the town sits The Brentwood Centre which hosts the annual Brentwood Festival.
The town also has five secondary schools, Brentwood County High School, Brentwood School, Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, St Martin’s School and Becket Keys C of E School.
Notable residents of Brentwood include former footballers Trevor Brooking and Neil Ruddock, Olympic medallist Fatima Whitbread and singer Pixie Lott.
The town has a large volleyball club in the town as well as the only handball club in Essex and their football club Brentwood FC currently ply their trade in the Isthmian League North Division.
