The Cater museum is a must tovisitirs to the town. It's free entry but you will enjoy it so much that a donation to keep it going is a must! The museum gives you a fascinating insight to the history of Billericay

A gem of a museum right in the middle of Billericay High Street. So much to see - yet you wouldn't believe it looking at the small, old door that is the entrance. A huge amount of history of Billericay is held here - and...More
