HC Deb 18 April 1910 vol 16 c1848W

asked whether the War Office purchased a portion of foreshore lying between Shoeburyness and Wakering Stairs, in Essex, from a Miss Knapping about five years ago; and, if so, whether such purchase included her fishing rights?


The War Department purchased a portion of foreshore extending from Rampart Street on the West to the Eastern boundary of the parish of North Shoebury on the East from the Misses Knapping in 1906. The purchase included the Misses Knapping's fishing rights.
