Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Tinsel Town 7 August 2008

Tilbury in Essex has been dubbed Tinsel Town by Mrs Monk, an ironic tag given the notoriety of the town, much maligned as something of a no-go area for the middle classes. Notwithstanding what might be said of the town, Tilbury has a unique character, remarkably free of the pseudo architecture so common in the county of Essex: No mock Georgian or pretend vernacular Essex barn and no fake Tudor, but plenty of awesome Gothic landmarks and acres of pebble dashed council housing, with much open space in which it is set. Tilbury is not in anyway a “beautiful” Town, nor is it picturesque but it is somehow remarkably photogenic, particularly when these November Phone pics were snapped by Mrs Monk
