South Benfleet is located 30 miles east of London and is a town in the district of Essex. South Benfleet has a rich and unique history, that extends back to the days of the Vikings and Saxons. It is very well known for the battles that took place during these eras, and the ‘Battle of Benfleet’ fought between the two parties in 894, is perhaps the most famous. During this battle, the Vikings were defeated by the Saxons, and this helped to form what South Benfleet was to eventually become.

History of Benfleet
The Saxons retained the area of South Benfleet for a large number of years, and in the 5th century, they named the area (which was largely marshland at this time), ‘Beamfleote’ which roughly translates as ‘tree stream.’ It is interesting to note that South Benfleet was named after these two forms of nature that formed the characteristics of the town it was to become!
Still within the reign of the Saxons, Benfleet became known as ‘South Benfleet’ when a new settlement known as ‘Little Benfleet’ was formed within the north of Benfleet. Nowadays, the area is split into ‘North Benfleet’ and ‘South Benfleet.’
In the 19th century, the years that followed the Industrial Revolution affected Benfleet when the town announced their plans to open a railway in Benfleet. The Industrial Revolution has played a major part in London life, and the life of many towns and cities that surround London and connect it with other areas. Benfleet railway station is connected to both Southend-On-Sea and London Fenchurch Street Station. It serves the towns of both Benfleet and Canvey Island.
Benfleet has been affected by other historical events, and it was well-documented when England and nearby areas next to South Benfleet, were hit by the flooding of 1953. During these floods, nearby Canvey Island (which is located slightly to the South of South Benfleet) was hit substantially, and over 55 people were killed in the town. The tragedy came about as a result of a major storm that took place in the North Sea which affected European countries such as the Netherlands, Scotland, Belgium and England. Overall, in England, over 300 people were killed by the flood, and these were from counties including Lincolnshire, Norfolk and of course Essex. Benfleet’s role in helping victims of the flood was to house local residents in ‘South Benfleet Primary School.’
