  • From the same direction as the postcard you have on the Hester story with the well in it, but from further back Dave

  • Somebody seems to be determined to own it. It ups every time we tried to get in… Good memory of a Canvey farm.

  • I put the first bid in Robert but it finished at £112

  • I watched the final seconds when it hopped from £107,51 to £112. Perhaps the new owner will loan it to the Canvey Arts Festival whenever that comes about?
