Eve Belle is a stones-throw from the bustling life of Wickford, which is home to an array of shops, open-air market, and a library.
Wickford also incorporates a small estate called Shotgate, which is home to many residents. Shotgate features a row of village shops and a children's play area and park.
Wickford has a history going back over two thousand years. There is evidence that the area itself was inhabited in prehistoric times probably by a tribe of Britons called Trinovantes. There was a Roman military marching camp on the Beauchamps Farm site, which was succeeded by a Roman villa. This is now the site of Beauchamps High School. This area on higher ground was the historic core of Wickford, the site of the manor house and the parish church of St Catherine's. Over time the commercial centre of Wickford has migrated westwards, towards the modern High Street on the other side of the River Crouch.
