Thurrock 100 Stories Book

Historical facts and strange stories, personal accounts and collaborative interpretations.  Thurrock was asked to share its stories, no matter how unusual, and what an amazing response!

‘I’ve lived here all my life and never knew this was here!’  This book is a unique, modern look at local history told by the people who live there.

As part of the ‘Thurrock 100 Stories’ project Kinetika gathered 100 stories about local history.  The stories were collected by writer Laura Trevail, and 100 corresponding silk flags were designed by Artistic Director Ali Pretty and artist Jacci Todd.

All 100 stories and the flags that illustrate them have been collected in the colourful, beautifully-produced book, along with historical information written by the late Jonathan Catton especially for the project. The publication is pocket-sized so that it can easily be taken on walks!

Proceeds of book sales go back to support the project for future years.

Books can also be purchased in person at Grays Library.
“Just received this book, having trouble putting it down. Lovely book, nicely put together, I’ve been away from Thurrock for many years now and it’s a nice reminder of what I’ve left behind. You have done a great job on it.”  Sue, verified owner.
