Kirby-le-Soken today still has the feel of a traditional English village, it is situated in an area of land called the Le-Sokens in Essex and is isolated from Kirby Cross, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze by fields and retains a village shop, two pubs and two churches. Kirby was originally a scattered farming community with an upper and lower road. Many people still refer to the village as lower Kirby with the upper road now known as Kirby Cross.
As a young Brownie/Guide, I was driven along this road from camp at Thorpe le Soken, to Church at Walton one Sunday morning, on a summers day. Passing through this village, I was impressed with its beauty and village feel. Id never seen it before, even though we lived a short distance away. That's what it was like when families didn't own cars!
