Some of the earliest records of human occupation of Billericay are the burial mounds in Norsey Wood: evidence of occupation in the Bronze and Iron Ages.
Evidence of Roman occupation has been found at a number of locations in the town and there may have been a small cavalry fort at Blunts Wall.
Norsey Wood is a mixed coppice woodland covering an area of 65ha (165 acres) and consists of a variety of habitats because of the different underlying geology. It has a history that goes back some 4000 years and this, together with the richness of its wildlife, makes this site unique.
Many of the residents and visitors to Billericay utilise the train to/from London and Southend Victoria. However, it wasn't an easy process adding a railway line through our town.
Billericay has Rev. J.H Harris for our town having a railway station and line put through the town as he was the man who helped persuad the Great Eastern Railway Company to put Billericay on the route through from Shenfiled to Southend Victoria.
Billericay provides a number of transport links to nearby towns and a direct train service into central London via London Liverpool Street and to London Southend Airport.
A bus service also operates through the town centre, via the train station and main roads through to larger towns like Basildon and Chelmsford and as far as Lakeside also.
