Eight years on
Eight years ago we had the Olympics on our doorstep. Canvey Community Archive were asked to participate in the creation of Canvey Gateway. We are mentioned on the information board at the site. We advised about the history of the crossing at the creek and supplied the photos used on the board. I first visited the site whilst it was still under construction and today I revisited to see how it was looking.
As you can see it does not look its best with the trees barely surviving. Neither cultivated nor left to nature it looks neglected. The information board looks good but could do with a clean. The stepping stones look well used. How many people visit the site I wonder? This is part of our history which should be more recognised.
