1 - Charfleets Industrial Estate

In 1960 Charles Hollingbery was contracted to build roads on the Charfleets Industrial Estate. About the same time he started one of his major house building projects North of Canvey Road, locally known as the Saints Estate or Charfleet’s Housing Estate.

The Industrial Estate was built on part of the Charfleets Farm to the south of Canvey Road. Mr E.E.Lawrence was the Architect who in 1960 contracted Charles Hollingbery to build Charfleets Road and Close and all the associated works. Several years earlier there had been a larger contract to build the service road but it is not Hollingbery who had this job.
