These old photos of Marshall Road Rainham Kent were taken around 1928 and 1932. The huge pile of flints has decreased a bit between the photos. One of the interesting things in the deeds for our house is a covenant that prevents us from selling flints from the house. I wonder if it was a common issue with building at that time and the ground having so many flints in it.

Marshall Road in 1932. You can see a conservatory has been added at this point
These photos were taken in the 1980s when a house was demolished to construct the Charlotte Drive estate
