Basildon was created primarily as an ‘overspill’ town to relieve the overpopulated areas of east London, and also to provide essential services and modern accommodation for the existing population of over 22,000, of which many were living in properties below the Housing Act standard.
By 1951 the first new tenants moved into newly completed homes in Redgrave Road, Vange.
Development continued throughout the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and into the 1980s when the development corporation was finally wound up.
The town has continued to transform with many new additions in recent years like the Festival Leisure Park and The Icon apartment block as well as the new Sporting Village which boasts the only 50-metre swimming pool in Essex.
Basildon is no longer referred to as a ‘new town’ and having passed its 70th birthday looks ahead to the future with much promise.
There is a direct London (Fenchurch Street) to Shoeburyness rail route with stations at Laindon, Basildon and Pitsea, which is also the junction for Tilbury and Grays. Services are operated by C2C.
Basildon sits between two arterial roads; the A127 and the A13. Both roads connect the town with Southend-on-Sea and the London orbital M25 motorway.
Basildon town centre is a large pedestrianised shopping precinct currently undergoing a regeneration. There is also the Westgate Centre with shops such as Argos. Opposite Argos is The Towngate Theatre attracting some famous acts and a yearly Christmas pantomime. To the opposite side of the Town Centre, you will find ‘Eastgate Shopping Centre’ connecting to an enormous two-level ASDA store. The Eastgate Centre has an array of independent and large branded shops.
Pitsea hosts a large Tesco Extra and Aldi supermarket. The town also has a market.
Festival Leisure Park (well known as Bas Vegas!) includes a host of popular restaurants, fitness club, Hollywood Bowl, and a 12-screen cinema. There are also a couple of night clubs.
Gloucester Park is the largest park with an area covering around 250 acres. Situated at the northern end is the Basildon Sporting Village where indoor facilities include a 50-metre international size swimming pool, large sports hall, a regional gymnastics centre, fitness centre, multipurpose studio, climbing wall and a café. Amongst the outside attractions are an athletics stadium, six floodlit five-a-side artificial pitches, twelve national standard netball courts, cricket and football pitches and a fishing lake.
Other parks and recreation grounds within Basildon include Northlands, Howard Jubilee, Mopsies, Whitmore, Swan Mead, Langdon Hills and Holy Cross, which is also the venue for the annual firework display.
Countryside walks can be enjoyed in over 450 acres of Nature Trail beginning at Dunton Hills in the south-west corner, continuing through the woodland of Lincewood to Marks Hill and finally to Willow Park.
Langdon Hills Country Park with its views of the Thames and beyond is another popular attraction, as is the Wat Tyler Country Park at Pitsea. Set in 125 acres of unspoilt countryside, the park boasts an adventure playground, marina, art and craft shops, sculpture trail, Tudor houses, visitor centre and a 10.25″ miniature narrow gauge railway.
Basildon also has an 18-hole municipal golf course covering 164 acres.
