West Ham footballing legend Bobby Moore lived here.

Location: 4 Stradbroke Grove, Chigwell

Description: This is where West Ham United and England World Cup winning captain and midfield maestro, Bobby Moore, lived during his West Ham heyday.

Robert Frederick Chelsea 'Bobby' Moore, OBE (12 April 1941 - 24 February 1993) won a total of 108 caps for the England team, which at the time of his international retirement in 1973 was a national record. This record was later broken by 125-cap goalkeeper Peter Shilton.

Moore's total of 108 caps continued as a record for outfield players until 28 March 2009, when David Beckham gained his 109th cap.

On February 14, 1993, he publicly announced he was suffering from bowel cancer. Three days later, he commentated on an England match against San Marino at Wembley, alongside his friend Jonathan Pearce. That was to be his final public appearance: seven days later on 24 February, at 6.36am, he died at the age of 51.

On June 28, 1993 his memorial service was held in Westminster Abbey, attended by all the other members of the 1966 World Cup Team. He was only the second sportsman to be so honoured, the first being the West Indian cricketer Sir Frank Worrell.
