The Battle of Beamfleot (Benfleet)

An amateur map from 1955

By Phil Coley

There is little evidence and much dispute about where, when, what happened or any fact about the Battle of Beamfleot (Benfleet). Over the years many people have suggested where it might have been.

These documents have been hidden for over 60 years and were an attempt by a local amateur historian, Roland E Cooper, to find out where the battle took place.
