Upminster


Upminster was recorded as Upmynstre in 1062 and the name is derived from mynster, which refers to a church served by several clergy, rather than to a monastery. The prefix up means 'higher ground', although the town does not rise much above sixty feet. Upminster means - 'the church on high land'. The name of this area was originally Chafford, a corruption of St Chad's Ford and tradition asks us to believe that the brothers St Chad and St Cedd used it as one of their preaching centres when they brought Christianity to Essex in c.670.

The station was opened as UPMINSTER by the London,. Tilbury & Southend Railway on 1 May 1885 and first used by Underground trains on 2 June 1902.
