Frank Whitnall

Frank had been a teacher at Furtherwick Park School until 1972 and lived on the island for 12 years. He had been a staunch supporter of the archive since the early days. He was introduced to me (virtually) by one of our founder members Graham Stevens. We then frequently corresponded by snail mail or email. He gave us permission to publish the articles he had published in the Essex Countryside magazine during the 60s/70s.  These articles about the history of Canvey have been enjoyed by our readers for many years and will continue to do so. The amount of research he must have done must have been considerable.

We have collected together his articles and photos he has sent us all together in this category so they can be easily found.
