Middlesex , Sussex and Wessex during the Heptarchy. Originally recorded in AD , Essex occupied territory to the north of the River Thames , incorporating all of what later became Middlesex which probably included Surrey and most of what later became Hertfordshire. Its territory was later restricted to lands east of the River Lea. After the Norman conquest, Essex became a county. During the medieval period, much of the area was designated a Royal forest , including the entire county in a period to , when the area “north of the Stanestreet” was disafforested. However, County Boroughs of West Ham — , Southend-on-Sea —  and East Ham — formed part of the county but were unitary authorities not under county council control. Parish-level administration — changes A few Essex parishes have been transferred to other counties.

Visited my GP in October for a flow reduction problem. Referred to the prostrate clinic where after an unsuccessful treatment with drugs I was further referred to Colchester Hospital and a doctor who advised me after examination that the best course was a HoLep and that this would eliminate my discomfort. Phone call within a week to arrange a premed which although over an hour long was reassuring and carried out with great skill.
The Highway Act of placed responsibility upon the parish highway surveyor, who was unpaid, but probably did his best with scarce resources.
The stages in how this community came about were gradual transformations: Agriculture and London have always been crucially important. Occasionally, ancient objects come out of the gravel pits. These include stone age tools, roman wine jugs and various other things. How they got there we are not quite sure: However, people did live permanently in Upminster before the Roman invasions. These people called “ancient Britons”, “Celts”, or “Belgae” because of similar pottery in Flanders were farmers.
In southern Upminster, we can still see the landscape that they created. A glance at the Ordnance Survey map shows how the field and road boundaries in the south, and alongside the Ingrebourne, are mostly rectilinear. In the north it is quite different: This rectilinear landscape is very ancient. The land round here, if left uncultivated, rapidly reverts to woodland, and these field boundaries, in the south, are probably unchanged since the Bronze Age.
The archaeologists have just completed a major dig at Hunts Hill Farm a bit south of Harwood Hall , and although their report is awaited, it is clear that people lived in Upminster, from about BC.

Leisure Colchester — or Camulodunum as it was then — was the first Roman capital of Britain and evidence of its past is still very much apparent throughout the town. Part of the original Roman wall that surrounded Camulodunum can still be seen on Balkerne Hill, on the outskirts of the town centre, and two of only five Roman theatres in the country are located here.

The Abbot also sat as a peer in Parliament. The last abbot, John Reeve, was given a pension, and may have lived his remaining days in this house in Crown Street. During the time of the abbey any form of local self determination by the townspeople of Bury existed solely through the Candlemas Guild and later the Guildhall Feoffment Trust. The property of the Abbey of St Edmund was surrendered to the Crown on 4th November but much of the wealth had already been confiscated in the previous year.
After the dissolution in , the rights of the Abbot returned to the Crown. The government of the town was largely ignored by the new owners of the abbey lands and privileges, and any joint actions continued to be carried out through the Guildhall Feoffees, largely without any formal legal backing. Over the next hundred years local government would replace the Abbots’ Rule, but religious differences would cause bitter divisions in the country.
However, the town had now lost the use of the great library of the abbey, the access to the several hospitals which the monks had run, the grammar school was closed, and the various charities and good works of the monks were suddenly gone. The poorest in society would suffer most from many of these changes. The library of books at the abbey does not seem to have attracted much attention from collectors at the time, and M R James thought that they were mostly acquired by local Bury people.
It would probably be 50 years before there was much interest in them from collectors. Many manuscripts may have simply been disposed of as waste materials.

Here is an image from an advertisement for the Anschutz 54 rifle in , which “ad” stated that these rifles were being imported into Britain as a result of their International and National competition successes. By , the now World famous Anschutz SuperMatch had been introduced. With the SuperMatch’s purpose designed three-positional Standing, Kneeling and prone equipment, there appeared a need for a purpose built prone rifle By the , the Model 64 had been introduced Shown below is a hand-built walnut and steel scale model of an Anschutz Model – of s vintage.
The rifle is barely 7″ long; and the. Below is an example of a late s Anschutz SuperMatch rifle, minus its rear-sight, and with the prone stock, used for the same round-actioned barrel, underneath for comparison. From these times, Anschutz never looked back, their rifles being frequently used to gain success at the highest levels of International competition.
Century models led the way in non-wood “skeletonised” alloy stocks, now built by many competing manufacturers. Wooden stocks are, however, not past their sell-by date. Many high achieving target shooters still prefer them, which has required manufacturers to continue production and development of the traditional rifle. Below are images of a British owned, customised, modern Anschutz.

There are five distinct physiographic regions of Vermont. The geological pressures that created those peaks remain evident as the Champlain Thrust , running north—south to the west of the mountains now the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. It is an example of geological fault thrusting where bedrock is pushed over the newer rock formation. As a result of tectonic formation, Vermont east of the Green Mountains tends to be formed from rocks produced in the Silurian and Devonian periods.
Western Vermont mainly from the older Pre-Cambrian and Cambrian material.

There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks. You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.
Do not briefly glance over a page and assume that the information you require is not there. It may not be immediately obvious, but careful observation may provide you with the information for which you are looking. Such research is a major part of the joy of owning, collecting and shooting classic or historic rifles. Anschutz target rifles fall into this category, and their system is given on the page for these rifles.
