Show Off on Bread & Cheese Hill
This is a view of the A13 Bread & Cheese Hill Thundersley. The hill rises 54m from the 30m contour line at TQ775844 to the 84m Spot Height at TQ788879 (about 1.5km in road distance). That's a long hill in Essex!. The hill got its name in the Edwardian era when motorcars on the way to Southend-on-Sea would boil over by the time they reached the brow of the hill. Chauffeurs would eat their bread and cheese lunch while the engines cooled. It was not long before a hostelry (which still survives) was opened to take advantage of the trade. There are no prizes for guessing its name!
