This work gives an insight in Victorian life and conditions in the 19th century in Barking, Essex. The fact that disease was always just around the corner, and many people had short life spans due to this. It highlights that poor living conditions and lack of sanitation led to disease and the fact that by the turn of the 20th century things began to improve in the town by the passing of government and local acts.

This work gives a slightly different slant on Chadwell Heath, which lies within the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham, Essex. Chadwell Heath itself has the most buildings within the borough over 100 years of age, and the study has proved very interesting. Here we take a walk around its streets, whereby I identify what actually still exists here in words and photographs, as well as examining the usual historical rhetoric.
