Judith grew up in Loughton & writes:

Loughton: From village to reality show idiom

Loughton has become the epitome of the unreal reality show TOWIE (The only way is Essex).

Nail bars and clubs made famous by the show reside on the grounds of shops and ancient inns. Underneath it all middle England survives—remnants of life as it was fifty years ago remain. The large evergreen tree still retains the gigantic coloured Christmas bulbs which remain all year waiting to delight yet another generation of children at Christmas time. The post office where mothers chatted meeting their friends is now a Wetherspoons pub –‘The last Post’ – and serves much the same purpose. My work examines this eclectic centre of Loughton where the ancient Lopping Hall stands beside The Venus Clinic for cosmetic surgery-Botox and boob jobs.
