  • I think this may have been one of the roads off Holbeck rd.I remember a family called Cox that had one in their garden.

  • Hi Bob and others,
    Don’t exactly remember the caravan but the name of the Cox family rings a bell. This story was told to me by my brother Chris some yrs ago
    When he was one of Billy Wells’ pony boys in the 50s Shenton Cox , who was about his age came to the pony field and on several occasions in the Summer holidays ordered a horse for a cousin who was staying with them from London, turns out this guy was Frazier Hines who was at drama school
    Starting as a child actor he had many roles( inc in Dr Who) but was most famous for the character Joe Sugden in Emmerdale Farm for 10 yrs and then for a subsequent period in the 80s
    According to internet info he now breeds horses! G.

  • Just checked out the internet info it appears he breeds RACEHORSES bit of a step up from Billy Wells’ ponies!

  • Fraser Hines and his parents used to come to Canvey every summer and stayed in Rye Cottage in Gifhorn Road. It was a little way on the left down Gifhorn. His mother used to sing opera at the top of her voice.
