Then there was the little matter of Skerries Bank, a veritable garden of Eden for fishing folk, still today fished for sole, mackerel, gurnard, bass and other varieties of fish, which absolutely abounded here in offshore depressions known as ‘pits’.

The catches would be mostly mullet and bass during spring and early summer, and mackerel in late summer. Only certain fish would be suitable for crab bait, so the remainder would either be eaten by the local families, sold to hawkers who would take them around the nearby farms and hamlets, or would be sent to London by train from Kingsbridge seven miles away where it would largely end up in Billingsgate market.
