The Canvey Rifle Club was located behind the Anchor Pub in Benfleet for many years until the building was sold for redevelopment.

The Club relocated to a building at Waterside Farm, (now the site of the recycle centre), but this was not very satisfactory and the Club disbanded I think in the 70's.

The photographs were taken during the 50's & 60's.
