Jeff's Cottages, North Fambridge, Essex
Jeff's Cottages, North Fambridge, Essex
These cottages stand almost opposite the Ferry Boat Inn, and in the best Essex tradition, are weatherboarded. The middle cottage (the one with the boat in front of it) was the actual 'Jeff's Cottage', Jeff being the man who operated the ferry across the Crouch to South Fambridge. It is thought that this ceased in 1955. It is interesting to note that everyone I spoke to in this vicinity did NOT want a ferry restored, or a bridge built: they prefer to keep their distance from Southend!
