Cyrildene and Delta Sport

Old Photos

First picture is of my old family home, named Cyrildene, in Barnards Ave (where Salvation Army is located at rear of petrol station.)  The building was demolished in 1984 but typical of former structures on Canvey Island.  Don’t know exactly when my Nan (Dorothy Mason buried in Heritage Centre) purchase property but I guess it was the early 1930’s.  Around the living room was a stubborn tide mark representing the level of the great flood of 1953.

  • I’m sure I used to be at school with a girl who lived in that bungalow her name was Beryl Mason and I think next door lived the Benterman family.

  • Planning for Cyrildene was placed in 1927 and owned by Mr Henry MADDISON and Mrs Emma Sarah MADDISON.

    They were still living there in 1929.

    The property was vacant in 1939.
